Now Available: Transgender Family Law Book by GLAD

This is a guest post from Jennifer Levi, the book editor and Transgender Rights Project Director at Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders. 

I am pretty excited about the recent release of a book co-edited by myself and Liz Monnin-Browder, Transgender Family Law: A Guide to Effective Advocacy. The book pulls together a huge amount of resources with which few attorneys would be familiar.  I urge everyone in the community to pick up a copy and share it with friends or, for anyone facing a family law issue, with your attorney.

We wrote the book because until we can do more to educate lawyers and judges about the reality of transgender people’s lives, transgender people will continue to face serious discrimination and bias at our most vulnerable times. Far too many people have lost relationships with their children, been forced into to unfair property settlements, or had intimate relationships of longstanding duration ignored, all because nobody was prepared to legally represent them and because courts simply mirrored widespread social bias rather than challenged it.  Transgender Family Law is more than just a legal resource, it is a tool for social change.

Purchase a copy of the book here.
