Achieving Equitable Representation

To achieve equitable representation, the percentage of elected positions held by openly LGBTQ elected officials would need to be equal to the percentage of LGBTQ people in the U.S. adult population. Right now, LGBTQ people are 4.5 percent of the U.S. adult population but hold just 0.17 percent of elected positions nationwide.

To achieve equitable representation,
America would need to elect:

MORE GOVERNOR (total of 3)

MORE U.S. SENATORS (total of 5)

MORE U.S. REPRESENTATIVES (total of 20)

MORE STATE LEGISLATORS (total of 333)

MORE STATEWIDE EXECUTIVES (total of 20)

MAYORS OF 100 LARGEST CITIES (representation achieved with 5 mayors)
