Formed in 2010, the Tennessee Stonewall Bar Association provides support to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) lawyers working in Tennessee, especially those practicing in the greater Nashville area. The Tennessee Stonewall Bar Association is dedicated to promoting LGBT inclusion and civil equality both in Tennessee’s legal community and the state’s general population. Therefore, membership is not restricted only to LGBT attorneys, but it is available to anyone in the legal profession of Tennessee, including paralegals and law students, that wish to aid them in furthering the inclusion of bisexuals, gays, transgenders, and lesbians in the legal profession and advocating for equal rights for the LGBT community in Tennessee.
There are several ways that the Tennessee Stonewall Bar Association supports gay, lesbian, transgender, and bisexual individuals living in the state. Every year, the Tennessee Stonewall Bar Association hosts a legal clinic in conjunction with Nashville’s gay pride festival to help people out with legal issues specifically affecting the local LGBT community. Another way that the Tennessee Stonewall Bar Association educates people of their rights is by holding speaker events on various legislative bills that may impact the civil rights of lesbians, bisexuals, gays, and transgenders living and working in Tennessee.
In addition to being active in the community, the Tennessee Stonewall Bar Association also provides several forms of aid to its members. Members frequently attend the meetings that it holds each quarter in order to network with one another. The Tennessee Stonewall Bar Association also provides its members to get involved in advocating for LGBT rights by bringing them together to write amicus briefs for appealed cases dealing with the civil rights of the LGBT community.
