DC Coalition of Black LGBT

The DC Coalition was founded in 1978, when a group of individuals carefully and successfully spearheaded the struggle to end overt racist policies of many area gay bars. The DC Coalition now stands as the oldest Black Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) political, educational and social organization in the country. The DC Coalition seeks to promote the needs and aspirations of and celebrate the identity of Black LGBT men and women in the DC metropolitan area. It has served as a voice for thousands of men and women in the Black LGBT Community in the metropolitan DC area and around the country.
