"As Benjamin Franklin once said, in this world, nothing is certain but death and taxes. But for LGBT people and those living with HIV, there’s an added certainty: we must take extra measures in life and financial planning to protect ourselves and our loved ones from the potentially devastating effects of pervasive social bias and a discriminatory legal system."

We're constantly making plans—to finish school, get a better job, find ways to save money and make time for family. Creating plans helps us reach our goals and organize life's priorities. Of course, there are some areas of life planning that we tend to put off because they seem complex or unpleasant—drawing up a will, for example, or deciding who will make medical decisions in the event of an emergency. Nevertheless, it’s necessary that everyone take steps to plan for these events. Lambda Legal has prepared this toolkit, with information on creating wills, protecting your medical and end-of-life decisions, and more, so that you can take the power and create a more secure future for yourself and your family.
