Report LGBTQ/HIV Discrimination
If you've been mistreated or harassed based on sexual orientation, gender identity, or HIV status, the ACLU wants to hear about it -- we might be able to help. Please tell us by filling out the form below.
We get a lot of requests for help, so please bear with us as we try to get to your request. We'll let you know whether we can give you legal assistance. If we can't, we'll try to find another organization that may be better equipped to help. Thank you for contacting us.
This form is ONLY for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and HIV/AIDS concerns. For any other issue or question, please contact your local ACLU affiliate. Please review our legal disclaimer.

We can better help you if you provide all of the requested information.
Disclaimer and Notice
This Survey does not give legal advice, and you should not rely on it as legal advice. You should not rely on the information you get from this site and should speak with a lawyer to get advice on your specific situation. We also cannot promise that the information on this site is complete, accurate, or up-to-date.
This Survey is not an offer by the ACLU to represent you. We cannot promise you that the information you provide will lead to any specific action on the ACLU’s part. Once you complete the survey, the ACLU may not do anything—including contact you—about your situation. By filling out this survey, however, you agree that the ACLU can share all of your information with our state affiliates in order to determine whether we or our state affiliates can help you.
If you fill out this Survey, you agree that the ACLU, one of its state affiliates or, if identified as part of the Survey, one of its coalition partners, may use the information you give us, as long as we don’t include your name, address, email or phone number, for one or more of the following purposes: (1) legislative testimony, (2) litigation; (3) contacting a city, state or federal agency; or (4) telling your story to the public, including the media. If the ACLU, its state affiliates or one of its coalition partners wants to identify you, we will contact you prior to doing so.
We will keep your name, address, telephone number and email confidential unless you give us permission to use it or unless we are ordered to turn it over by a court (although we will attempt to prevent any disclosure).
