Legal handbook for LGBT Floridians available for free download

Staff Reports

Equality Florida Institute is providing an electronic version of the “Legal Handbook for LGBT Floridians and their Families” free of charge on their website.

The 76-page resource offers information on how LGBT Floridians can legally protect themselves and their families, including critical information about the importance of long-term planning related to health, family and financial considerations.

“Discriminatory laws and the lack of legal protections impose hardships and complicate ordinary life for LGBT Floridians,” said Nadine Smith, CEO of Equality Florida.

“This vital resource is important for LGBT Floridians to understand how to protect themselves and their loved ones under the laws that currently exist,” said Smith.

The resource is a pro bono project of the law firm Carlton Fields Jorden Burt, in cooperation with Equality Florida Institute. It is available for download here.
