Volunteer Opportunity for Judicial Candidates!

This year, we vetted and endorsed our judicial candidates based, in part, on how they will ensure that transgender, non-binary and GNC litigants in their courtrooms will be treated - from use of pronouns to proper facilities.

Join us at Excelsior on Tuesday, 6/18 as we stuff mail to members of the LGBTQ community, encouraging them to get out and vote for our judicial allies on June 25!

As many of you, Excelsior is, sadly, closing at the end of July. Excelsior has served as our unofficial clubhouse for many years. It has long served as a longtime meeting and social space for many in Brooklyn’s lgbtq community. LID’s new logo was unanimously adopted by our board here, and a lot of our successful work has been discussed, argued and put in place in this important space.

Let’s gather there for what may be LID’s final horrah and send-off for this amazing bar.
