The Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund works to elect LGBT leaders to public office for one simple reason.  They change America\'s politics.Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender office holders are our clearest and most convincing champions for true equality.  As leaders in government, they become the face and voice of a community. 

The Gay & Lesbian Leadership Institute works to achieve full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people by building, supporting, and advancing a diverse network of LGBT public leaders.
