There are LGBTQ Democratic groups across the country that work to elect gay and gay-friendly Democrats in federal, state, and local elections. These political operations are known collectively as the Stonewall Democrats. Generally speaking, Stonewall Dems also believe that the best way to serve the gay community is to have political leaders that are gay themselves. No offense to our straight allies, of course, and we will always be in need of support from straight allies but there is no greater representation than to represent ourselves. The public needs to see out and proud members of the gay community working in campaigns and running for office. Stonewall Democatss also serve as a bullhorn for LGBTQ governmental issues and help direct gay voters to ballot boxes all over the country.
