2014 Fall Curtain Call

Join Lambda Independent Democrats of Brooklyn (LID) at our Fall Curtain Call, which is an annual event that serves as a time for everyone to put aside our differences, celebrate the outstanding work of our members and learn about how we can work together going forward.

To name a few things, over the past year LID has worked to:

- Supported a set of pro-equality and progressive candidates during the 2014 election cycle running for Governor, Attorney General, State Comptroller, Congress, State Legislature, District Leader, Kings County Supreme Court and Kings County Civil Court;

- Advocated to state legislators and the Governor for the passage of the Gender Expression Nondiscrimination Act;

- Joined with Iris...h Queers to continue push for an all inclusive St. Patrick's Day Parade that welcomes all LGBTQ groups to march in 2015;

- Responded to a troubling cycle of ant-LGBTQ hate crimes in Brooklyn by spreading awareness and safety tips;

- Lobbied to increase resources such as funding and beds for runaway and homeless youth in NYC; and

- Endorsed the Vote No on Prop 1 Campaign because we believed this ballot referendum represented fake reform for the redistricting of legislative districts.

All are welcome so feel free to bring someone! The event is FREE, but if you are pleased with the work LID is doing, consider making a donation. You may also use the link to purchase or renew your membership. https://lidbrooklyn.nationbuilder.com/donate

About LID: Brooklyn’s largest LGBTQ 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 LGBTQ community. During that time, 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.
