Powering the Rainbow Wave

A Rainbow Wave of LGBTQ people were elected to office in 2018 – and many were trained, supported or otherwise impacted by the work of the LGBTQ Victory Institute. Whether through our four-day signature Candidate & Campaign Training, Victory Empowerment Fellowships (for LGBTQ people of color and trans people), or Victory Congressional Internships (for openly LGBTQ college students), we helped power the Rainbow Wave that swept the nation on Election Night. At the International LGBTQ Leaders Conference in December, we gathered these newly elected official to strengthen the network that will fuel LGBTQ political power in the years ahead.

The Impact of Victory Institute in 2018

- 55% of openly LGBTQ candidates who are Candidate & Campaign Training alumni were victorious on Election Night 2018 compared to 39% of openly LGBTQ candidates not trained by Victory Institute.
- 134 openly LGBTQ candidates were Candidate & Campaign Training alumni with 74 winning elected office. 
- Victorious Candidate & Campaign Training alumni include U.S. Representative Angie Craig, California Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara, Pennsylvania Representative Malcolm Kenyatta, Arkansas Representative Tippi McCullogh, Colorado Representative Brianna Titone, and Georgia Representative Matthew Wilson.

LGBTQ Victory Institue works tirelessly to build and support a diverse pipeline of LGBTQ leaders who can make change in the halls of power. We cannot do it without contributions from generous supporters like you. Thank you!
