Queer the Census 2020
LGBTQ+ communities have been ignored traditionally in the U.S. Census, decreasing the funding and representation of queer communities. To increase LGBTQ+ representation, Gay City joins some of Seattle’s other leading LGBTQ+ organizations to raise awareness about civic representation, and access to funding the needs of our communities.
Join us in the fight for LGBTQ+ access, safety and visibility.
