Queer caucus
established in League of California Cities

Symbolizing the growing pink power within California politics, the state's league of cities recently established an LGBT caucus to promote diversity and community goals within the league and the state legislature.

The League of California Cities advocates for the common interests of California's approximately 500 cities. The establishment of a gay caucus was led by West Hollywood, a predominately gay and lesbian city that seceded from Los Angeles in 1984.

The caucus will push diversity through networking, public education, and advocacy on issues important to California's queer community.

"There [are] at least 30 openly gay and lesbian municipal officials in California," said West Hollywood city council member Jeffrey Prang. "This new caucus will provide LGBT officials an important means of working together on local and state issues. The caucus provides an important opportunity for the LGBT community to enhance our voice in local government." (The Advocate)
