SAY GAY. SAY TRANS. SAY PRIDE.

Nine million American citizens live outside the United States. We live and work in Amsterdam and around the world. And we vote in American elections with global implications. Democrats Abroad is our voice within the U.S. Democratic Party.

LGBTQ+ rights have come a long way, but progress is not always permanent. In both the US and Europe, hard-won rights are once again under attack. So-called “Don’t Say Gay” laws prohibit teachers from discussing gender identity or sexual orientation in any way. They institutionalise homophobia and transphobia, and put vulnerable young lives at risk.

At Democrats Abroad, we stand with LGBTQ+ youth. We oppose the silencing of LGBTQ+ voices. And in November, we will stand up to vote in the crucial midterm elections in the US. US citizens living abroad can now request their ballot at VoteFromAbroad.org

Now it is time to make our voices heard. Say gay. Say trans. Say it out loud. And say it with pride.
