Recent Cases


A man in Arizona faced the loss of his shared custody of his child. We provided moral support and an expert witness referral. Here's what happened:

I wanted to give you an update on our situation, especially since it's fantastic news! We won. Across the board. G. retained fifty fifty custody with the biological mother and received no restrictions on what events he can take his child to. . . . I want to thank you for your help. You put me in touch with Dr. S. and though our lawyer didn't call on her testimony, her support and calming presence helped me immeasurably. We are now in your debt two times over. Thank you! You absolutely can use this email. Is there anything else I can do to support your work?


A NYC man was threatened with reduced contact with his children. The mother of the children sought modification of the joint custody arrangement because of his involvement with alternative sexual expression, despite an absence of any evidence that his sexuality adversely impacted his children, and despite an abundance of evidence that he was a conscientious and responsible father. He was successful in having his joint custody reinstated. SFLDEF collected donations to provide funds for his legal counsel, and to defray his portion of the fees to pay the court appointed attorney for the children.


The operator of a BDSM "dungeon" was charged with promoting prostitution, a felony. The case was resolved with a plea bargain resulting in no jail time and five years probation. SFLDEF collected donations to help with his legal costs.


Hannah, in Knoxville, TN was at risk of losing custody of her ten-year-old child because Hannah was part of a polyamorous triad. In part because we (and you) helped, she got her daughter back without having to leave her triad.

Here's what that family has to say about us:

Now I would like to take a quick moment to talk about Valerie White and the Sexual Freedom Legal Defense and Education Fund. This organization did the most of ANY organization to help us. In my mind, you can have a great website, a list of board members and volunteers a mile long and every supporting organization under the sun but when someone is in need and their plight relates to your fund raising organization that is when you will be able to separate the true organizations from those just setup for attention and hype. So let me just say this now: If you have any question as to who to donate your attention, time and money toward look no further than the Sexual Freedom Legal Defense and Education Fund.
