Our Story

History &
What We’re About

Q Street is the nonprofit, nonpartisan, professional association of LGBTQ lobbyists and public policy advocates. We were founded in 2003 on the heels of the Supreme Court’s historic decision in¬†Lawrence v. Texas, when there was renewed hope for advancing the rights of the LGBTQ community in Washington. Q Street was formed to be the bridge between LGBTQ advocacy organizations, LGBTQ lobbyists on K Street, and our colleagues and allies on Capitol Hill. Q Street was formally incorporated in 2008. We appreciate and thank the leaders who came before us!

As the march for equality has advanced, Q Street has grown and evolved as well. We now have more than 3,000 recipients of our monthly digests, hundreds of attendees at our receptions, and our monthly luncheons have featured speakers such as Members of Congress, campaign managers, activists, plaintiffs in the most important LGBTQ Supreme Court cases of our time, and the Secretary of the Army.
Today, Q Street hosts nearly 25 receptions, lunches, and professional development events every year. We are continuing to explore how we can best help our members grow and network in Washington.
