Many are unprepared for the issues that attend the end of life. The lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual community can be even more at risk of experiencing discrimination and disenfranchisement. The goal of this guide is to close the gap of information on end of life care for the LGBTQIA+ community, since much of the existing information is directed toward heterosexual couples and nuclear families. In addition, the guide identifies key areas of risk within the legal system for those of diverse sexual orientations and/or gender identities. With the right information and legal steps in place, one’s identity and wishes can be honored through the end of life and dying processes.

This practical manual for making informed choices about your own, or a loved-one’s, end of life care, is targeted to Louisiana residents identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual or any other gender identity and/or sexual orientation minority, and to their caregivers. The guide walks the reader through the basics of end-of-life decisions. Download a digital-only or print-friendly PDF below and please share widely.
