# Vote LGBT!
GAY BLOG and Scruff encouraged the choice of LGBTI+ candidates in this year’s elections, through the publication of articles and interviews and with lives on social networks. A list of candidates was constantly updated.
One of the interviews was with professor and activist Renan Quinalha, about the power of the LGBTQI+ vote: “I think LGBT people, they have more difficulties. I think we have seen a process that is very interesting and beautiful, of LGBT people joining political parties, of LGBT people running for candidates. We know the difficulty, the effort that it requires you to lend yourself to being a candidate for an elective office, the amount of energy, time, emotional resources, financial resources that it requires, of talking to people and everything. So, reinforcing the call of the Scruff Brasil, that we need to vote for LGBTQIA+ people. “
