Queer Rising is a grassroots organization created to demand full equality for all queer people through nonviolent direct action. Formed in late 2009 by people tired of watching LGBTQ rights put on the back burner or given no attention at all, Queer Rising vows to continue to pressure legislators and the public until all queer people are equal.
Past actions have demanded marriage equality, the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” improved police relations with the Latino LGBTQ community, hate crime and suicide responses, and social acceptance.
