Who We Are

VOTE PROUD is the Non-Partisan movement to inspire the LGBTQ+ community to register and vote. We must combat voter apathy among all marginalized Americans. Our movement demands all citizens are treated equally.

We're planning multiple virtual events with our celebrity partners. Stay tuned!

 

We have partnered with When We All Vote, a non-partisan voting effort co-chaired by Michelle Obama and several other influential voices. We are changing the culture around voting using a data-driven and multifaceted approach to increase participation in elections.
