¡Feliz Día de Acción de Gracias!

DA Spain’s LGBTQ+ Caucus is kicking back into action. Madrid members John Murphy and Hal Moskowitz are the brand new co-chairs of the caucus and are gearing up for an inaugural brainstorming session on December 1. And even though it’s called the LGBTQ+ Caucus, all are invited to join!

With the announcement of Trump’s planned run for the presidency, we know the threat to the survival 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, 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 openly say the word “gay” (as we’ve seen threatened in Florida’s legislation), will all be on the table.

The caucus invites DA Spain members to tap into your passion and help us form a collaborative community so we can better identify and understand all the issues and concerns affecting the LGBTQ+ community. As part of this effort, 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 us, and invite a friend or two!
