About Lead Out Loud Day, April 2

On April 2, 1974, Kathy Kozachenko won a seat on the Ann Arbor, Michigan City Council, becoming the first out LGBTQ+ person elected to public office in the United States. Each April 2, LGBTQ+ Victory Institute celebrates Lead Out Loud Day to honor her legacy and encourage more LGBTQ+ people to run for office in her footsteps.
