Give OUT Day & Give the gift that keeps on giving!
The LGBT Caucus of the Democratic Party of Hawai’i is Hawaii’s only LGBTQIA political (policy & legislative) organization. So we hope that you will take advantage of #GiveOutDay to donate to the LGBT Caucus or buy your ticket to our annual celebration of Marriage Equality becoming the law of the land!
2019 is the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots (the birthplace of LGBTQIA rights modern day movement) & the 4th Anniversary of Marriage Equality becoming the law of the land! To help kick off Pride month the LGBT Caucus is moving our annual celebration to Sunday, June 2.
So even if you cannot make it yourself buy a ticket or sponsorship as a gift for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and/or graduation. Knowing this is the gift that keeps on giving!
The County Conventions are coming up for O’ahu & Maui counties (Kaua’i doesn’t convene in odd years & Hawaii County has already had their convention)! If you were a County delegate in 2018 you are a County delegate in 2019. If you were not delegate in 2018 but want to be one in 2019 contact your district chair.

As the LGBT Caucus has shown since 2013 (i.e. passing the transgender birth certificate law, banning conversion therapy & our 2019 Legislative Bills we will be supporting) we all still so have so much more left to do to ensure justice and equality is a reality for everyone. So we hope that you will think about making a donation to the LGBT Caucus so that we have the resources for the battles ahead.
Mahalo nui loa!
