Beginning September 1, 2018, people residing in CA may file a petition with the superior court in any county seeking a judgment recognizing the change of gender to female, male, or nonbinary. The process for obtaining a different gender marker and name change also became easier as of September 2018, no longer requiring a physician’s affidavit. In addition, a nonbinary option on one's CA ID or driver’s license also became available beginning on January 1, 2019. If you would like more information on this new law, or assistance in changing your name and/or gender on your ID documents, please come to the legal clinic at the SF LGBT Center on March 23.

We often have no-shows and encourage participants to still attend workshops if they’re not registered. If you’re unable to register, we recommend arriving to the workshop at least 10 minutes early to add your name to the waitlist. Individuals on the waitlist will be admitted on a first-come-first-served basis until space is full.

Where can I find more info about the BMR homebuyer program?
