This year, we must vote to save our lives.

2020 provides us the starkest choice in American history: to elect a pro-equality champion as president or to face four more years of a Trump-Pence administration that has attacked LGBTQ people at every opportunity.

This critical election is a major test for our movement, and it’s not limited to the presidency: local and statewide officeholders can have as much of an impact on the daily lives of LGBTQ people as those at the federal level. With the stakes higher than ever before, we need YOUR help to defend our rights and put an end to hatred and discrimination from those in power.
