About Equality Loudoun
We have been working since 2003 to make Loudoun County, Virginia a welcoming place for all its residents - gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and straight. We think that all families are important and deserve security, all children have the right to a safe and supportive educational environment, and all members of the community are entitled to respectful and equal representation by our elected officials.
Our goal is a Loudoun community free from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. By participating in civic life, building relationships with business, religious, and community leaders, and living our lives with integrity, we can create a community with respect for all.
Whether you are only interested in local social events, are looking for opportunities to participate in education and advocacy, or just want to stay informed about LGBT issues in our local community, Equality Loudoun has a way to stay connected and involved that is right for you.
We are nonpartisan, 100% volunteer and grassroots driven. Please consider becoming a member, and sustaining our ongoing work building a Loudoun community that includes ALL of us.
