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, non-profit political organization that defends the civil rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the Nation’s Capital.
GLAA lobbies the D.C. Council; monitors government agencies; educates and rates local candidates; and works in coalitions to defend the safety, health and equal rights of LGBTQ families. GLAA remains the nation’s oldest continuously active gay and lesbian civil rights organization.
