Recognizing the great obstacles faced by low/no-income queer & trans individuals who seek to change their legal name and/or gender marker, this collective of non-attorneys seeks to share knowledge gained from firsthand experience to demystify the legal process and support pro se petitioners logistically, financially, and emotionally.

STL Name & Gender Marker Change Mutual Aid provides information on step-by-step processes based on public information and lived experiences (not legal advice) from others on what worked and did not when getting their name and gender marker legally changed in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, Missouri, and Illinois.

The organization also offers name / gender marker change pop-up clinics and tables at events.
