Nearly 50 candidates and elected officials and over 325 guests packed the Meeting Center at Doppler for a successful mixer. We loved seeing so many people come prepared with a list of candidates to seek out and questions to ask.

A huge thank you to our hosts at Amazon and Glamazon for bringing us to such a fantastic space and providing delicious food and drinks. And thank you to our sponsors at DML Insurance and Whitepages for their support of this event.

Part of the success of this event was the participation of 21 organizations representing many different parts of the LGBT community. We are proud to have our members join us every year to show that the voice of the LGBT community is a powerful voice that must be listened to. Thank you to our partners at API Chaya, Center for Multicultural Health, Emerald City Black Pride, Entre Hermanos, Equal Rights Washington, Gay City, Gender Justice League, Ingersoll Gender Center, Legal Voice, Out for Sustainability, POCAAN, Pride Foundation, QLaw GLBT Bar Association, Seattle Area Support Groups & Community Center, Seattle Counseling Service, SEAMEC, U.T.O.P.I.A Seattle, Victory Fund, Seattle Gay News, Seattle Gay Scene, and the Seattle Lesbian. These are the groups making a difference in our region - find out what they are doing and how you can contribute.
