  • Mission Statement

    “As Outright Libertarians, we serve as a two­-way bridge between the Libertarian Party and those with differing sexual orientations or gender identities. Through activism and outreach, we find freethinking individuals in the gender and sexual minority (GSM) community and introduce them to the Libertarian Party. By being active within the Libertarian Party, we work to keep the party platform inclusive of equal rights for GSM people. We also work with the Libertarian Party to protect individual freedom and demand equal rights and responsibilities for all persons.”
