The Florida LGBTA Democratic Caucus represents the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community to the Florida Democratic Party. We are a statewide organization, with more than a dozen local chapters around the state, from Tallahassee to Jacksonville to Miami-Dade -- and most major metropolitan areas in between. Our strength lies in the size of our organization and the ability of our local chapters and their individual members to stand up for equal rights, support candidates who support our community, and lobby for legislation and policies that recognize and strengthen our community. The Florida LGBTA Democratic Caucus is chartered by the Florida Democratic Party and many of our members currently serve on Democratic Executive Committees across the state.
