One of NLC’s five constituency groups, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Local Officials (LGBTLO) encourages the active involvement and participation of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender municipal officials and provides a forum to network and share best practices.
LGBTLO is a caucus within NLC that provides municipal officials who identify and ally with the LGBTLO community to connect with their colleagues in a forum to share ideas and develop leadership experience.
Established in 1993, LGBTLO serves as a vehicle for members to discuss problems and explore solutions, debate policy issues, and contribute to the success of American cities and towns such as discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and the disproportionate impact of the pandemic on the LGBTQ community. The group meets twice a year in person and hosts a variety of webinars and programs throughout the year.
The LGBTLO Board of Directors is elected every two years at NLC’s City Summit by the group’s membership. For information about Board nominations and an application form, see the membership section below.
