Membership Rates

In the beginning, I joined NLGJA because I thought it was important to show that I supported its central mission. I have remained a member because of all the wonderful people I have met — both incredible friends and professional connections. David Steinberg

Copy Desk Chief, San Francisco Chronicle

I stay an NLGJA member not only because I support fair and accurate coverage, but I also enjoy the camaraderie among my fellow LGBT journalists and media professionals.
