The Queens Libertarians (or QL, formerly the Libertarian Party of Queens County), is the authentic voice of libertarian views, activism, education and advocacy in Queens since 1994. QL promotes issues, initiatives, local candidates and activists who have been part of raising awareness of liberty issues, towards removing state force and fraud from the lives of New Yorkers.
The Queens Libertarians remain one of the largest and most active groups in the New York Libertarian scene, and was the largest chapter of the (now defunct) Empire State Libertarians. The meetings held by QL/LPQC over 20 years have hosted an ongoing educational speaking program advocating free markets, individual and personal liberty, in talks participated in by elected officials and luminaries ranging from Henry J. Stern, to Roy Innis of CORE, Julia Harrison, Jeffrion Aubry, Bill Schmidt, Dan Halloran, Randy Credico, Alex Merced, Larry Sharpe, Mike McDermott, mark Glogowski and many others.
QL members have also helped organize city or statewide efforts such as opposing eminent domain abuse, invasive TSA practices, as well as launching one of the first five Ron Paul meet-up groups in the country. The QL currently meets (since 1994) on the second Saturday of each month at 11:30 am, at OBA Grill, 70-35 Austin St, Forest Hills, NY.
