2019 Elected LGBTQ Democrats endorsed by Stonewall DFL

Electing Champions for our Community

Stonewall DFL works for a safe and equitable Minnesota by endorsing and electing LGBTQ and allied candidates for public office in and in the Minnesota DFL Party. Our endorsements are important to many Minnesotans who seek our advice choosing candidates that will champion issues impacting the LGBTQ community.

Outreach & Inclusion is Our Mission

Stonewall DFL represents the DFL in the LGBTQ community and represents the LGBTQ community in the DFL.

As the official LGBTQ outreach arm of the DFL, we participate in Pride and other events in every corner of the state – educating and registering voters, promoting our endorsed candidates, and creating a pipeline for LGBTQ people to get involved in the DFL Party.

We remind the Party of – and help it fulfill – its obligations of outreach and inclusion for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people.

It's #WorldAIDSDay.

Today we honor the lives lost to HIV and AIDS related complications since the epidemic began. We also celebrate the millions of people around the world that are living with HIV and are continuing to thrive in their lives.

Tonight, the Interstate 35W Bridge over the Mississippi River will glow blue, pink and white at the request of the City in observance of Transgender Day of Remembrance.

Transgender Day of Remembrance memorializes people killed in acts of transphobic violence. It was founded in 1999 to honor Rita Hester, a transgender woman murdered in Massachusetts the previous year. In the 20 years since its founding, Transgender Day of Remembrance has grown to become a worldwide event.

According to the Human Rights Campaign, a record 37 trans and gender non-conforming people have been killed in violent acts nationwide since the start of the year. The majority of the victims are Black trans women and femmes. Violent acts against trans and gender non-conforming people often go unreported or misreported, so the actual number of those killed may be higher.

On Nov. 13, Mayor Jacob Frey and the City Council approved a resolution to officially observe Transgender Day of Remembrance. That resolution acknowledges that “there is much work ahead in our duties to help co-create a safer, more equitable city for our transgender and gender non-conforming community members.”

To transgender and gender-nonconforming people across America and around the world: from the moment I am sworn in as president, know that my administration will see you, listen to you, and fight for not only your safety but also the dignity and justice you have been denied.

At least 37 transgender and gender-nonconforming people have been killed this year, most of them Black and Brown transgender women. It’s intolerable. This Transgender Day of Remembrance, we honor their lives—and recommit to the work that remains to end this epidemic of violence.

Congratulations @ScottDibble for earning far more votes than every other MN Senate candidate 🏳️‍🌈 https://t.co/tkod7ZAB2R
