Lambda Independent Democrats Pull Stringer Endorsement, Back Morales for Mayor

The Lambda Independent Democrats of Brooklyn (LID) pulled their endorsement of mayoral candidate Scott Stringer on May 6 and backed Dianne Morales, an Afro-Latinx former non-profit executive who has received two LGBTQ club endorsements in a matter of days.

“At LID, we take sexual assault very seriously,” the club wrote in a statement on Twitter. “Too many members of the LGBTQ [community] have suffered long and painfully, often in silence. Thank you to all the members who participated in what was, for many, a very difficult but very civil and thoughtful discussion.”
