DA Spain is launching (or re-launching), our LGBTQ+ caucus. Madrid members John Murphy and Hal Moskowitz are the brand new co-chairs of the caucus and are gearing up to set up an inaugural brainstorming session on December 1. Even though the official name for the caucus is the LGBTQ+ caucus… All are invited to join!
With the announcement of Trump’s campaign, we know the threat of the demise of our democracy is still very real. And with an ascendant DeSantis and the anti gay GOP, LBGTQ+ rights are right in the cross hairs.
With either option, our passionately fought for rights such as the right to marry whom we love, related immigration rights for those who have foreign partners, a women’s right to choose, the right to safety from gun violence, the rights of our Trans sisters and brothers to safe science-based care, even the right to speak openly the word “gay” (as we’ve seen in Florida’s legislation), will all be on the table.
The caucus invites all to tap into your passion and help us form a collaborative community here at DA Spain so we can better identify and understand all the issues and concerns affecting the LGBTQ+ community. As part of this we will be looking for dedicated volunteers and steering committee members.
The new group hopes to achieve big things but also build a community of like-minded individuals, make connections and, hopefully, have some fun along the way. The caucus needs your input on the best ways to do this. So please consider joining the caucus, and invite a friend or two!
