GLAD maintains GLAD Answers which provides legal information, referrals on issues related to sexual orientation, HIV status, and gender identity and expression. These issues include employment and housing discrimination, harassment, HIV testing rights and privacy, access to health care, family law, insurance, immigration, youth and student rights, and many others.

Although you can call, email, or chat online to get more information, during the COVID-19 pandemic, they are not able to answer phone calls live at this time but will return your call. Live chat is also unavailable. During this time, email is the quickest way to get a response.

While every effort is made to provide current and accurate information for the agency descriptions and hours of operation, it is recommended to call the agency to verify the information before visiting.
