The Capitol Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) Association exists to facilitate the professional development of LGBTQ-identified staff of the California State Capitol community. We work to recruit LGBTQ capitol staff, provide means for their retention, and offer professional mentorship. We educate other California State Capitol community members on issues affecting or related to the LGBTQ community. We also provide networking opportunities for LGBTQ Capitol staff. Our membership is open to all LGBTQ Capitol staff, employees of departments and agencies, lobbyists, as well as our friends and allies in the greater Capitol community.
