ProudPolitics’ approach to building leaders is built upon 3 strategic pillars:

To Build Capacity & Incubate

ProudPolitics aims to build and support leaders and potential candidates through various programs:

ProudVoices – a program to develop qualified spokespersons whom are able to speak about LGBT issues in the media

Proud on Board – Identify and support the appointment of LGBT leaders to public agencies and other statutory boards or bodies


To Aggregate, Share & Spread

Networking Mixers – faciltiate networking of the politically minded LGBT community
