GLAA was founded in 1971 as the Gay and Lesbian Activists Alliance, and updated in 2017 to be more inclusive of the LGBTQ community. GLAA is an all-volunteer, non-partisan organization of D.C. residents committed to advocating for equality and liberation for LGBTQ and affiliated communities in our city, and remains the oldest continuously active political LGBTQ rights group in the country. 


GLAA lobbies the D.C. government; informs and rates local candidates; engages in public education; and works in coalitions to defend the safety, health, and human rights of LGBTQ people.
