Social media has been full of heated and divisive conversation following the Presidential election. Amid the backlash comes big questions about the LGBTQ community, given the ridiculous stance of Vice President-elect Mike Pence.The hashtag #TransLawHelp has been started to help those in the trans community with answers and free legal assistance.
According to Cosmo, #TransLawHelp is meant to help trans people who need name changes and ID documents before Donald Trump takes office in January 2017. Lawyers have joined the hashtag to help answer questions—pro bono—about trans rights and what may be in store for the LGBTQ community under the new administration. Pence is an outspoken enemy of LGBTQ rights, advocating things like gay conversion therapy and wanting to overturn same-sex marriage.
