Mission Statement

Swish is a gay-straight alliance that creates opportunities for all women and men to contribute their time, energy, and talents to furthering the LGBT rights movement. Swish envisions a world in which love is equal.

Description

Over the last 11 years, Swish has engaged more than 3,000 straight ally and LGBT members worldwide in joyful partnership with the LGBT rights movement.

Along with our award-winning annual appearances in the New York City Pride March (5-time nominee and 3-time award-winner by Heritage of Pride), Swish has participated in the Atlanta and LA Pride Marches and represented the United States delegation at the EuroPride 2008 events in Stockholm.

In 2009, Swish was the first organization to endorse the National Equality March in Washington, DC, for which we were named among the Best of Gay New York City by Time Out NY that year. Over the last four years, Swish volunteers have logged hundreds of phone-banking and canvassing hours with state coalitions to win marriage equality in 19 states and Washington, DC! Most recently, Swish joined Google as an honoree at Marriage Equality USA’s national gala to receive our 2013 Community Partner Award.

Now Swish is embarking on a new venture to expand its mission to more communities around the world. Swish is launching the Swish Ally Fund at The Stonewall Community Foundation - the firsts of its kind - to fund grassroots organizations so that they can engage straight allies in the fight for love and equality.
