The left’s crusade to impose their social and cultural “values” on the rest of the nation will be getting a major test at the ballot box this November.
In line with the emphasis on identity politics and SJW dogma, a record number of LGTBQ ∞ candidates will be running for office with most of them being Democrats.
Forced diversity and transgenderism will be the rallying cry for what many are hoping will be the queering of Congress as well as state offices now that some very special people have gotten their foot in the door and are counting on the coming rainbow wave to kick it wide open.

More than 400 LGBTQ candidates are running for public office in the United States in 2018, more than ever before in an election cycle, according to data from the Victory Institute.
The group, which identifies and trains prospective LGBTQ candidates, revealed that the candidates are also mostly Democrats.
At present, 559 LGBTQ elected officials hold positions across the country, according to the Institute’s 2018 “Out for America” report. That number is a jump from the 448 LGBTQ elected officials that held positions in the previous year.
However, the Institute said in the report that Americans need to elect 22,827 more LGBTQ people to public office to achieve “equitable representation” in the nearly 520,000 elected positions it estimates are in the U.S.
“LGBTQ elected officials in positions of power are fundamental to moving forward equality legislation and policies, but their unique experiences also bring an authenticity and values framework that makes them better public servants,” Annise Parker, the first openly LGBTQ mayor of Houston and president and CEO of the Victory Fund and Victory Institute, said in the report.
“At a time when many Americans are questioning both the motivation and seriousness of the nation’s politicians, LGBTQ elected officials bring a refreshing sense of openness, empathy and drive to get results,” Parker added.
From @VictoryInst's new study on the state of LGBTQ representation:
• There are 559 known LGBTQ election officials currently serving in the U.S.
• We need to elect 22,837 more LGBTQ elected to achieve equitable representation.

According to Victory Find which is cited in the story:
LGBTQ Victory Institute works to increase the number of LGBTQ people in public office and to provide programming, service and other support to help ensure their success.
LGBTQ Victory Institute was launched as Victory Foundation in 1993 to begin training current and future LGBTQ candidates and campaign workers to ensure a successful career in public service. The Victory Institute expanded its programming to include the Presidential Appointments Initiative – which works to place openly LGBTQ appointees in pro-equality presidential administrations – and the International LGBTQ Leaders Conference, an annual conference that attracts hundreds of openly LGBTQ elected and appointed officials.
Like other arms of Big Gay, the Victory Fund is getting lots of media love for Pride Month but the LGBTQ ∞ demographic remains a very minuscule percent of the overall population despite their relentless push to accrue as much political power as possible to impose their agenda on America.
