Stonewall Democrats, also known in some states as LGBT Democrats, is the official caucus within the Democratic Party that advocates for issues that are relevant to LGBT Americans.[1] The caucus primarily operates through individual chapters supporting LGBT rights and affiliated with the Democratic Party.

History[edit]

In 1971, Alice B. Toklas Memorial Democratic Club of San Francisco was the first registered LGBT Democratic club in the nation.[2]

In 1975, the Stonewall Democratic Club was established in Los Angeles, California, the first 'Stonewall Democratic Club' in the country established for LGBT individuals and straight allies committed to achieving equality for all and to advancing progressive and feminist values through the Democratic Party.
