16 LGBTQ+ Candidates to Watch on Election Night


All eyes are on whether voters will oust Donald Trump this week and whether Democrats can claw back their majority in the Senate. There are also thousands of other races happening this cycle, with over 550 LGBTQ+ candidates vying for election. The Victory Fund, an organization that works to elect out candidates, is endorsing 311 openly LGBTQ+ candidates, from those in the reddest states to the bluest, from congressional candidates to those running for school boards and town councils. Representation matters, especially in the halls of power, and more out candidates equates to more equality. Check out some of the most high-profile LGBTQ+ races on the following pages.
