Endorsements

The Florida LGBTA Democratic Caucus represents the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community to the Florida Democratic Party. We are a statewide organization, with local chapters around the state, from Tallahassee to Fort Lauderdale – and most major metropolitan areas in between. Our strength lies in the size of our organization and the ability of our local chapters and their individual members to stand up for equal rights, support candidates who support our community, and lobby for legislation and policies that recognize and strengthen our community.

The Florida LGBTA Democratic Caucus is chartered by the Florida Democratic Party and many of our members currently serve on Democratic Executive Committees across the state.

The Florida LGBTA Democratic Caucus endorses in all levels of government in Florida, from school board to governor. If you are a candidate who wishes to apply for an endorsement from the Florida LGBTA Democratic Caucus please submit one of the following candidate questionnaires:

Applications should be submitted after the filing date no later than 45 days before the date of the first election. Under extraordinary circumstances, the Florida LGBTA Democratic Caucus may agree to waive the deadline.
