History

The National Stonewall Democrats was founded in 1998 by Barney Frank, a gay Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives representing Massachusetts's fourth congressional district, and brought together previously unaffiliated LGBT Democratic clubs throughout the nation.

The group describes itself as "a grassroots force for social change within our movement and within our party." The organization is based in Washington, D.C. and currently has over 90 chapters.

Michael Mitchell is the newest executive director having served as Executive Director of Equality Utah, the marriage campaign manager for the ACLU's LGBT Project, and the advocacy and planning specialist for the Equality Federation. He replaced Kyle Bailey as the interim Executive Director.[1] Previous leaders of the organization include Jo Wyrick, Eric Stern, Michael Perez, Paul Yandura, Michael Colby, and Chad S. Johnson.

In 2003, the University of Michigan chapter of the Stonewall Democrats became the first of its kind on a college campus.
