About Lambda Independent Democrats of Brooklyn
Lambda Independent Democrats of Brooklyn ("LID") is Brooklyn’s largest lesbian and gay political organization. Founded by a group of activists in Boerum Hill in early 1978, we have grown to become one of the state’s largest LGBT political clubs.
For over 35 years, LID has been 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 voters, educating voters about LGBT issues and about candidates' positions, and building a coalition of LGBT, pro-equality, and progressive political allies.
Today, we have 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.
