Take Action

The Center advocates for comprehensive healthcare and ending homelessness while fighting against anti-LGBTQ policies across the country. We do this by organizing grassroots community leaders (like yourself) to phone bank, canvass, and rally for affirming LGBTQ policies.

Vote by March 5th and help us keep Glendale schools inclusive for all!

We hope every eligible member of our community votes in every election and every race. This year, however, our eyes are especially on school boards. School boards play an important role in determining how schools are run, and they set school policies. But right now, we are witnessing a campaign by anti-LGBTQ+ extremists to overtake school boards across the nation, and in Glendale, to prevent LGBTQ+ youth from expressing themselves or teachers from educating our kids. Glendale’s school board election is on March 5th—which is the same date as the primary election. It’s time for you to get out and vote!

Our Advocacy Milestones

2008

Volunteers changed hearts and minds by canvassing across California to fight the hateful and unconstitutional Proposition 8 that banned same-sex couples from getting married.

2013

The Center played a lead role in the reauthorization of the federal Violence Against Women Act, ensuring that it now includes explicit protections for LGBT people, then the only federal law ever to do so.

2015

The Freedom to Marry became the law of the land. In a 5-4 decision, the United States Supreme Court ruled in the case of Obergefell v Hodges that the U.S Constitution guaranteed the right to marry for same-sex couples. The Center hosted a massive rally in West Hollywood, attended by thousands and covered by worldwide media.

2017

The Center mobilized hundreds of community members to fight the repeal of the Affordable Care Act when former President Donald Trump tried to take away healthcare from 32 million Americans.

2018

The Center successfully advocated for AB 2119, ensuring that foster youth have the right to access gender affirming care.

2019

The Center successfully advocated for the inaugural Lesbian, Bisexual and Queer (LBQ) Women’s Health Equity Fund, urging the State of California to allocate $17.5 million to the first of its kind government funded services for LBQ women.

2020

Our work talking with voters in Philadelphia suburbs contributed to the highest voter turnout in the city in 25 years!

2022

Organizers mobilized a team of callers to help get the vote out in Georgia. After years of Trump supporters crying election fraud, Georgians from all over the state showed up in a run-off from a midterm election to fight for a democracy that is reflective of the values held at the Center.

2023

In response to a jarring wave of anti-LGBTQ+ legislation—most of it anti-trans—the Center mobilized more than 40 community partners in a "Drag March" that swept West Hollywood; more than 2,500 participants showed up and heard from community activists, Center employees, and (of course) drag artists.
