Update your name, gender on your identification

As part of our comprehensive gender-affirming care, Equitas Health partners with trusted LGBTQ+ advocates, including TransOhio, Equality Ohio, and OCTOPUS LLC, to offer free legal clinics for the trans+ community on name and gender marker changes. At these monthly virtual clinics, a trained attorney will meet with you one-on-one to guide you through the process of changing your name and gender marker in the state of Ohio.
