Join NYLAG’s LGBT Law Project, Columbia Law School’s OUTLaws, and Orrick, Herrington and Sutclif on April 18th at the LGBT Community Center.

You will have the opportunity to learn about and complete your health care proxy, living will and other life planning documents. While everyone needs these documents, LGBTQ people definitely need them! These documents give us the opportunity to name the people of our choice, our chosen family, to make healthcare decisions for us when we are not able to do so. We also can name who will be responsible for our remains when we pass away, so that how we identify and the choices we have made about the ways in which we live our lives will be respected until the very end.
