PAC (wo)man: Pro-lesbian, pro-women committee launches

by Jeremy Hooper

Urvashi Vaid, Jane Lynch, Bille Jean King—those are just some of the power lesbians hoping to turn their influence into electoral success:

July 11, 2012—Today a group of activists and donors launched LPAC, the first of its kind lesbian political action committee. The values-based committee sets out to positively influence policies that impact women by electing candidates who champion issues that impact lesbians and their families.

“This year we have seen politicians repeatedly support policies that harm women,” said actress and supporter Jane Lynch. “It is important to me to elect leaders who care about issues that impact women and their families. That’s why I support LPAC.”

Contrary to stereotyped rumor, those involved are not required to bring a U-Haul to their second campaign rally.
