If you are a candidate who identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex or a similarly non-conformist identity who is interested in running for office, please email: ChairLGBTQ@gmail.com.
In 2018, we supported Susan Ruiz and Brandon Woodard as they campaigned to become the first LGBTQ+ Kansans ever elected to the Kansas Legislature. In Nov. 2018, we helped them make history! In 2020, we'll be supporting both as they run for re-election to the Legislature.
But in 2019, we're aiming to build the bench of LGBTQ+ candidates in Kansas by supporting candidates in local elections. The primary is Tuesday, Aug. 6, 2019, and the general election is Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019. We will be announcing our endorsed candidates after the primaries are completed.
Check back after the primary on Aug. 6, 2019, to learn more about our endorsed candidates.
