Voting gays and lesbians to form bloc

A new organization dedicated to endorsing political candidates who support equal rights for gays and lesbians is getting off the ground in Reno. The Stonewall Democrats of Northern Nevada plans meetings for the first Monday of each month at 7 p.m. at 2850 Wrondel Way, Suite J.

“We are new, but the members of our organization are not new to the struggles that remain for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community—and all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity,” says Dorismae Weber, chair of the organization. Weber says the group appreciates the enthusiastic acceptance it has received from the Washoe County Democratic Party.

The group began meeting in March. Its next meeting will be May 6.
