Meeting the Moment in the LGBTQ South
The Campaign for Southern Equality is working to build a South where LGBTQ people are equal in every part of life. A South where your zip code doesn’t determine your rights. Where all of us are free to be who we truly are and love who we truly love. At this unprecedented time of anti-LGBTQ attacks – and as public support for LGBTQ equality across the South continues to grow – we invite you to join us in Meeting the Moment in the LGBTQ South.
Following a brutal legislative session and the Supreme Court ruling in Dobbs, we are entering a new chapter in the movement for LGBTQ equality. Despite resounding national support for LGBTQ equality, we face unrelenting political attacks from far right extremists. That’s why the Campaign for Southern Equality is inviting you to join us in Meeting the Moment in the LGBTQ South. Together, we can empower the LGBTQ community in the South to Take Action, Take Care, and Take Steps to Prepare.Learn More
A South Where All of Us Can Thrive
The South is changing due to the courage of the LGBTQ community. We’re working to accelerate that by:
Funding & Training
grassroots organizers and activists to support a new generation of LGBTQ leaders.
Providing Easy Access
to resources and direct services for LGBTQ folks in the South.
Engaging in Rapid Response
organizing in response to immediate political threats and building political power through long-term strategies.
Our work is rooted in empathy and in commitments to equity in race, gender, and class.
Resources for LGBTQ Folks
We're creating a pipeline of resources to the LGBTQ South to help folks access services and to provide funding and training for grassroots organizers.Learn more about our work
Trans in the South Guide
Trans in the South: A Directory of Trans-Affirming Health & Legal Service Providers, is a directory of nearly 400 Southern health service providers that the Campaign for Southern Equality team has confirmed to be trans-friendly and trans-competent.
Southern Equality Fund
The Southern Equality Fund (SEF) provides funding and training to Southern LGBTQ folks doing heroic organizing in their hometowns. We prioritize work addressing the intersections of race, class and gender in the lives of LGBTQ Southerners. We also prioritize groups and individual leaders whose access to funding and support is limited due to barriers such as not having 501c3 status, or being located in a rural area.
Help us fight for legal and lived equality across the South!
