Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer + (LGBTQ+) Advisory Board

The mission of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer + (LGBTQ+) Advisory Board is to: 
  1. serve as an advisory body to the City and City Council regarding issues actually or potentially affecting persons within LGBTQ+ communities or the LGBTQ+ community as a whole;
  2. create, guide, support, and evaluate LGBTQ+ quality of life initiatives in San Antonio;
  3. coordinate and/or participate in educational programs to promote equitable treatment, opportunity, and understanding of persons within the LGBTQ+ community;
  4. facilitate gatherings, such as meetings, institutes, and forums, designed to lead to building community and crafting solutions for issues concerning LGBTQ+ San Antonians;
  5. work with other City Boards and Commissions to address issues of intersectionality; and
  6. perform additional functions as required by City Council.
The LGBTQ+ Advisory Board comprises 13 members: 10 District-appointed members appointed by their respective Councilmembers and three members appointed by the Mayor. Members serve a two-year term of office concurrent with the City Council term. 
The LGBTQ+ Advisory Board should have a balanced membership reflecting the challenges and concerns of LGBTQ+ communities, and should represent a diversity of ethnicities, national origins, races, colors, disabilities, religions, genders, gender identities and gender expressions, sexual orientations, ages, and socioeconomic statuses. The Advisory Board should include members who are broadly reflective of and sensitive to the needs of the LGBTQ+ community's diverse population.
