As we close out Pride Month 2023, we wanted to take a moment to reflect and celebrate the work that Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP has done together for the LGBTQ+ community over the last few years. We also want to recognize the acute challenges facing this community at this moment in time and pledge our continued support and activism in support of their rights. Gibson Dunn has a long history of supporting the LGBTQ+ community, including through our pro bono practice. We have represented LGBTQ+ asylum-seekers; helped transgender, nonbinary and gender-nonconforming clients obtain name and gender marker changes; and partnered with nonprofits and other organizations defending LGBTQ+ rights around the world.
Included in this newsletter are a few of the Firm’s recent pro bono matters for members of the LGBTQ+ community. We are proud to work on these matters and are committed to continuing this important work in the years to come, particularly as LGBTQ+ individuals face increasing threats to their rights and safety.
