Cleveland’s LGBT Community Understands the Importance for Jackson to Continue the Momentum
Cleveland – Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, who is seeking reelection this fall, has been endorsement by the Cleveland Stonewall Democrats Club. The endorsement follows Jackson’s long-held support of the LGBTcommunity in Cleveland.

Our community and neighborhoods are better and stronger as a result, where openness and acceptance of diversity is encouraged.”
The Cleveland Stonewall Democrats is an all-volunteer, independent organization that was established in 2000. It is committed to educating, endorsing, electing and holding accountable, pro-LGBT Democrats across Greater Cleveland. The club is devoted to securing equal rights for all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
