American lawyers have launched a new service of free legal help via Twitter specially for transgender people who want to know more about the possibility of changing their names and IDs legally. The hashtag #TransLawHelp was launched on Wednesday, and lawyers across the country are already using it to offer pro bono help and legal advice to trans people worried about the result of the election.

#TransLawHelp hopes to offer support to trans people who have questions and concerns about their legal status, or want to make sure their identity is legally recognised before Trump’s inauguration on January 20. There are widespread fears that when Trump becomes president in January, he will begin to roll back LGBT protections, potentially making it harder for trans people to have their gender identity legally recognised.
