Our Work

We Swish because ... equality for all people is too important not to.

Our Core Issues

  • Repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell (DADT)—CHECK!—and ensure that LGBT military members may serve with dignity
  • Repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), so that every marriage in every state has the same federal rights
  • Pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), to prevent workplace discrimination
  • Stand in solidarity against violence and hate in our communities
  • Reform immigration laws to recognize same-sex couples and end the needless separation of families
  • Protect the rights of LGBT parents to adopt children and build strong families

How We Work

Swish focuses on four initiatives to advance LGBT equality:
  • Swish Pride – Increasing the participation of straight allies at LGBT Pride events and rallies
  • Give A Swish – Engaging members with LGBT service organizations in community service projects and in issue campaigns and coalitions
  • Swish Nights OUT – Monthly  events that network, educate, and activate gay and straight people together
  • Swish Voices – Amplifying the diverse storeis of our members and partner organizations through our website and social media
