The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force is America's premier activist organization working for LGBT rights across the country. The work NGLTF does, in conjunction with other national, state, and local organizations, provides our best offense against discrimination. Through real campaigns about issues that matter, the victories won by NGLTF help change our country and world into a better place for queer individuals, couples, and families.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

team building, recruiting, and change-making through the No on 8 campaign; the results would have been tremendously worse had the Task Force not been involved.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue moving just as they are.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the incredible people involved and the enormous amount of knowledge I gained from them.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

wonderful people with passion about the issues at hand.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

support causes financially and organizationally to succeed in a time that is becoming most difficult for LGBT organizations.

Ways to make it better...

the organization from Equality California and the top levels of Equality for All had constructed a more progressive campaign.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

homophobia, transphobia, and conservative attitudes, in the right and left wing, as well as Barack Obama's failed promises to the LGBT community.

The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force is an amazing organization. I met them in 2005 when they were ran a training for a campaign I was volunteering with. In that first weekend I worked with them I learned so much; about myself, what I aspired to, and how to be a significant part of a campaign. I was inspired as I have never been inspired before. Since they I have worked on a professional level with the Task Force on many campaigns across they county. They continue to support me, teach me, inspire me, and make me strive for the quality of organizing they always exemplify. The NGLTF has had a huge impact on my personal and professional life more than any other organization I have ever come in contact with.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the skills of volunteers and professional organizers all across the country.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not change a thing.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I never stop learning. They always have more to offer.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Highly skilled at what they do. They strive to impart their skills to others. They are compassionate and caring while always motivating others to work their hardest.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Change the lives of LGBT individuals and families all across the country. NGLTF would work to pass pro-LGBT legislation all across the state as well as work to defeat anti-LGBT legislation.

Ways to make it better...

I had lived closer to one of their offices and gotten to interact with them more.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

they are limited in the number of states they are able to help at any one time due to staff capacity.

One thing I'd also say is that...

They do a great job using and distributing the resources they do have.

40% of homeless youth in the United States identify as LGBTQ, this is an issue our community cannot ignore. As a formerly homeless queer youth and now as the editor of the forthcoming ‘Kicked Out’ anthology (Homofactus Press, October 2009) I’ve had the pleasure to work closely with The Task Force to raise awareness about the epidemic of LGBTQ youth homelessness. ‘ Kicked Out’ brings together the voices of current and former homeless LGBTQ youth ranging in age from youth currently on the streets to people who have been out for decades. The foreword for ‘Kicked Out’ has been written by Judy Shepard (mother of Matthew Shepard) and the anthology includes the perspective of leading local, regional, and national organizations including The Task Force. For decades the needs of homeless youth have systematically been ignored, however the Task Force has shown that they are not afraid of tackling difficult issues, and that they are willing and ready to put the needs of homeless LGBTQ youth at the forefront. The Task Force has given us the most comprehensive data about the prevalence of queer youth homelessness and led the charge to raise awareness about this epidemic. I feel honored to include an excerpt of their ground breaking 2007 report ‘Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender youth: An Epidemic of Homelessness’ within the anthology, and to have had the continued pleasure of working with them to end the epidemic.
