Philadelphia Chapter

NLGJA Philadelphia is one of the NLGJA’s first chapters. Its first meeting, on Nov. 17, 1991, was coordinated by NLGJA founder Leroy F. Aarons and Philadelphia chapter founding member Larry Fish, and attended by about a dozen LGBT Philadelphia journalists.
 
The chapter continues to host events touching on current events, such as a panel discussion about how President Obama’s re-election in 2012 might affect LGBT rights legislation, an open forum on the impact of the Affordable Care Act on LGBT communities, and a public discussion about LGBT priorities beyond the issue of marriage.
