July 2023

Happy July, everyone! As the temperature rises, so does our excitement about this year’s Annual Conference. As always, our conference will be a celebration of our colleagues and our Association. A time to reflect on all we have accomplished together and to look towards our bright future.

As I finish my first year as President, I remain awed by the amazing LGBTQ+ judges that make up this vibrant Association. Our members are “firsts” in more arenas than I can count, and our visibility and strength serve as a light for all in the LGBTQ+ community. Every panel our members present on, every event we attend, heightens awareness and fosters a sense of belonging. Living authentically and fearlessly is a gift our judges share with all those they encounter, and that honesty and spirit make this the best group of judges anywhere.

And nowhere does our Association shine brighter than at our Annual Conference. There is no event quite like it and there is still time to register and join us. If you are new to the organization or have never attended our conference or Lavender Law, please know that life long connections and memories are built each year when we gather together. This year’s conference includes an architectural boat tour of Chicago, dinner at Harry Caray’s, an LGBTQ+ walking tour of downtown Chicago, our Judicial Institute focusing on AI and the Rule of Law, and receptions galore. And remember, most events are FREE to members. So please consider joining us in what will be the largest gathering of LGBTQ+ judges in history. Register here: 2023 Annual Meeting and Conference – LGBTQ+ Judges

As always, please feel free to reach out to us at or join one of our weekly Zoom meetings to connect with friends from across the globe. The Association is here for you.
