2022 was a rough year for FL Democrats in general and specifically LGBTQ+ Floridians. Gov. Ron DeSantis and his administration have made attacking the LGBTQ+ a top priority. Transgender youth in particular are at extreme risk. We must persist. We must rise up. We cannot give up or give in to the machinations of a fascist governor or his cronies. Emerald Coast Equality must now, more than ever, work to organize, educate and push back.
When you become a member of Emerald Coast Equality, the Escambia County Chapter of the Florida LGBTQ+ Democratic Caucus, you’ll have a resource for information on important public policy issues that affect your future. Our meetings are open to all Democrats and provide a chance to interact and learn about political and legislative issues affecting you and the LGBTQ+ community.
You will have opportunities to meet periodically with elected officials and other community/political leaders, actively exchange ideas and perspectives, and educate them about the needs of our community. Our allies are an important part of our extended community and
are always welcome.
