Who We Are
Lambda Independent Democrats of Brooklyn ("LID") is Brooklyn’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) political organization. LID was founded by a group of activists in Boerum Hill in early 1978 and has grown to become one of the state’s largest LGBT political clubs.
LID serves as the political voice of Brooklyn’s LGBT community. We have been building relationships with elected officials, endorsing and supporting LGBT and pro-equality candidates for public office, speaking out against bigotry and violence, fighting for marriage equality, advocating for the rights and services of people living with HIV and AIDS, lobbying elected officials for civil rights, registering and educating voters about LGBT issues, and building a coalition of LGBT, pro-equality, and progressive political allies.
Today, LID has over 4,000 members, supporters and friends, in addition to a core of hard-working volunteer board members who keep LID focused on the issues most important to the LGBT residents of Brooklyn. If you are interested in joining our board or have any questions, feel free to reach out.
