    The Alice B. Toklas Memorial Democratic Club of San Francisco was the first registered Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Democratic Club in the nation. Forming only two years after the Stonewall riots in the infancy of the LGBT civil rights movement, Alice grew to become a vibrant organization that has made a profound impact on San Francisco, California and American politics. Alice made its impact by training activists over four decades to become political professionals and electing candidates that have fought for the issues that are important to the LGBT community. The club has been instrumental in growing new leaders who would rise to the highest levels of government in the nation, such as Dianne Feinstein, an early friend of the club. Alice has been critical to the fight for LGBT leaders to win office, such as Mark Leno, the first gay man elected to the California State Senate. These leaders have helped make San Francisco the epicenter of the LGBT political movement, advancing causes such as equal benefits, domestic partnership, transgender health care, and marriage equality. Alice continues to be a major player in local, state and national politics and remains an inspiring and effective organization to this day.

    The Harvey Milk Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Democratic Club, San Francisco’s largest Democratic Club, is known for both its progressive politics and its independence. Founded in 1976 as the San Francisco Gay Democratic Club, during a time when founding Democratic Clubs was the radical thing to do; It was the city’s first Democratic club with the word “gay” in its name. While other gay groups balked at supporting Harvey Milk’s bid for supervisor, and as one early member says, were uncomfortable talking about cocksucking, The Milk Club was a place for people to be political, left, and queer. It was also a club founded to keep the gay community free itself of anointed gatekeepers and machine politics. The club was renamed for Supervisor Harvey Milk when he was assassinated in 1978.
