Long Beach Lambda Democratic Club was formed as a Democratic Club under the guidelines and affiliation of the California Democratic Party and the California Democratic Council with the purpose of furthering the human and civil rights of all minorities, especially those of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered people.
What We Do
Long Beach Lambda Democratic Club is not just a political organization. We also hold of social events where you can network, discuss politics with like-minded individuals and enjoy being a Democrat.
Long Beach Lambda Democratic Club was started in late 1977 in response to the Briggs Initiative, an anti-gay-and-lesbian initiative to bar gay and lesbian teachers from the classroom. After Briggs was defeated, the club continued as a political voice for the community, recognized by both the California Democratic Party and the California Democratic Council, and soon after its inception received the award for the largest growing club in California. Over the years, the club’s work in campaigns made its endorsement a sought-after asset. We strive to continue to be a voice not only for gay and lesbian, bisexual and transgendered individuals, but also as a proponent of human and civil rights for all minorities and an advocate for progressive issues.
