Cleveland Stonewall Democrats
The Cleveland Stonewall Democrats are devoted to advancing equal rights for all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. The Cleveland Stonewall Democrats support the Democratic Party and Democratic candidates who support our mission. We draw strength from a regional network of Northeast Ohio individuals composed of LGBTQIA+ and Allied Democrats who are working to achieve the following goals:
To educate the LGBTQIA+ community, and people who are supportive of it, about the vast differences that exist between the two major parties on the issues of concern to our community;
To lead our party to improve its record on issues of importance to the LGBTQIA+ community, including civil rights legislation, prevention of hate crimes, AIDS prevention and treatment, LGBTQIA+ health and wellness, and women?s reproductive freedom;
To work for the nomination of Democratic candidates from the local to the national level, including qualified LGBTQIA+ candidates, who will be fully supportive of our efforts against bigotry and intolerance;
To encourage our community to support and vote for Democratic candidates who are committed to defeating homophobia, transphobia, racism, sexism and prejudice.
