Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Seattle Commission for Lesbians and Gays was first established in 1985 as the Mayor's Lesbian/Gay Task Force. In 1989, the Task Force became 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 of 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.
