What We Do
Advance LGBTQ Protections
Every year, Equality Virginia monitors LGBTQ-related legislation introduced to the Virginia General Assembly and advocates on behalf of Virginia’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer community.
Empower Transgender Virginians
EV facilitates story sharing opportunities between transgender advocates and community organizations to increase accurate transgender visibility and celebrate our diversities.
Make Equality Real
In 2020, Virginia’s LGBTQ community won historic and life-changing gains in legal equality. Among these victories, Virginia is now the first state in the South to protect LGBTQ people from discrimination in employment, housing, and public spaces.
