Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Mayor's Lesbian/Gay Task Force was established in 1985 within the Office for Women's Rights. In 1989, the Task Force became the Seattle Commission for Lesbians and Gays, a full city commission with 15 volunteer members. When the Office for Women's Rights was abolished in 1987, the Commission was absorbed into the new Office for Civil Rights, and its name was changed to the Seattle Commission for Sexual Minorities. The Commission advises the Mayor, City Council and other City departments on issues of concern to sexual minorities. It also recommends policies and legislation in matters affecting the sexual minority community.
