Who are we?

Our Mission

The Pittsburgh LGBTQIA+ Commission advises the Mayor’s Office, City Council, and other City government departments on issues pertaining to the Pittsburgh LGBTQIA+ community. In addition to advising city government on legislative, administrative, and budgetary decisions, the Commission acts as a resource to create dialogue by elevating LGBTQIA+ voices and advancing communication between the LGBTQIA+ community and city government.

Our Vision

The Pittsburgh LGBTQIA+ Commission envisions Pittsburgh as a healthy, safe community with equitable access to employment, housing, education, quality healthcare, social services, public facilities and businesses for all residents and visitors, regardless of sexuality, gender identity or gender expression.
