LPAC is the only organization whose mission is to build the political voice of LGBTQ women.
LPAC was founded in 2012 by a group of LGBTQ women seeking to create a place, and voice, at the power table for our community. We do this by endorsing and investing in candidates directly and supporting them through independent expenditure campaigns. We’ve raised more than $5.5 million and endorsed more than 125 candidates. And we’re just getting started.
LPAC’s focus is on electing candidates – particularly LGBTQ women – who share our values: LGBTQ and women’s equality, women’s health, and social justice while helping coalesce LGBTQ women as a concrete and powerful political demographic.
There are no federal protections for LGBTQ people in the workplace or in housing, and state-level protections are erratic. Same-sex marriage is legal federally, but 13 states still prohibit it at the state level, making us one conservative Supreme Court decision away from disaster. LGBTQ Americans must be fully equal under our laws.
With the ongoing assault on women’s rights at the federal and state levels, it’s more important than ever to elect politicians who will put women’s protections front and center of their platforms. Reproductive choice and maternal support are non-negotiable values – full stop.
All people in America — regardless of race, sexual orientation or gender identity, class, geography, or immigration status — deserve a fair shake. We deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. LPAC endorses candidates who put this intersectional perspective into practice in their campaign platforms and political actions.
LPAC builds the political power of LGBTQ women by electing candidates – LGBTQ women in particular – who champion LGBTQ rights, women’s equality, and social justice.
LPAC achieves its mission by increasing the political power and engagement of LGBTQ women and their allies, and by building a network of LGBTQ women who take political action.
We are a unique demographic that’s been overlooked in national debates and decision-making for far too long. We demand a voice in the debate and a seat at the table. Together, we are a force to be reckoned with – and of course, a force for good.

Project LPAC’s mission is to study, compile and disseminate empirical research about LGBTQ women as a political community, with a particular focus on those who are economically challenged, transgender, and/or women of color. Their goal is to share the findings of this research with organizations, corporations and NGOs so that they can be fully inclusive in their efforts to empower and increase the involvement of LGBTQ women in society.
