Who We Are
We are the members of the Flamingo Democrats, the Miami-Dade chapter of the Florida LGBTQ+ Democratic Caucus. Our organization, united in a common purpose, works to strengthen and further the ideals and principles of the Democratic Party, which recognizes and promotes diversity, good will, and respect for all members of the community.
The Caucus works to elect Democratic leaders who share our values to all levels of government, from the municipal governments to Tallahassee to Capitol Hill and the White House. We also defend and promote equality for the LGBTQ+ community. We generally meet on the third Thursday of every month at 7:00pm. We are currently meeting virtually, but we hope to meet in person again soon.
