Chapters

NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ+ Journalists is a chapter-based organization with more than 20 chapters in the United States. Our membership growth as an organization depends on active, relevant and vibrant chapters. It is at the local level that we carry out–on a day-to-day basis–our mission to foster fair and accurate coverage of LGBTQ+ issues. It’s also in the local chapters that networking, information sharing and just plain fun and friendship takes place.

Don’t see a chapter in your area? Start one! Contact jacquelyn@nlgja.org to learn more about starting a chapter in your area.

Interested in a chapter leadership position? Elections are held every December. Find more information on the elections process here.
