The Queer the Census 2020 coalition collaborates with the Seattle Public Library to present a multilingual Storytime with renowned drag queens Romi and La Gorda. Storytime provides an opportunity for the LGBTQ+ youth to gather with loved ones and learn about the importance of civic representation.
ABOUT THE QUEER THE CENSUS 2020 COALITION
LGBTQ+ communities have been ignored traditionally in the U.S. Census, decreasing the funding and representation of queer communities. To increase LGBTQ+ representation, some of Seattle’s leading LGBTQ+ organizations joined together to raise awareness about civic representation, and access to funding the needs of our communities.
The coalition includes Gender Justice League, LGBTQ Allyship, UTOPIA, Entre Hermanos, GSBA, Alliance of People with disAbilities, Peer Seattle, Black Live Matter Seattle King County, South King County LGBTQ Task Force, POCAAN, QLaw Foundation, Ingersoll Gender Center, Gay City, LGBTQ National Task Force, and Somos Seattle.
