Who We Are
The Alexandria GLCA serves GLBT citizens and their allies in the greater Alexandria, Virginia area. The organization provides a hub for communication and activities such as social events, education, community involvement, and political awareness. We are a nonprofit [501(c)(3)], non-partisan association. The Alexandria GLCA was founded in 1983.
Anyone who supports the purposes of the Alexandria GLCA is welcome to join us--women and men, GLBT people and straight allies, couples and singles, and regardless of whether you live in Alexandria, Membership is only $25 per year, or $35 for a couple.
The Alexandria GLCA is a vehicle for GLBT citizens to be active and visible in the fabric of the community. We sponsor an annual scholarship for a local student, provide volunteer support for community agencies, and co-sponsor HIV Testing Day events.
The Alexandria GLCA provides a collective voice for the local GLBT community on legislative and policy issues. We maintain relationships with our elected officials and serve as a resource to them. We also provide political awareness information to members.
We know our community is diverse, and so is our line-up of activities. Our goal is to have something for everyone, and for everyone to feel welcome. Alexandria GLCA events are the best place to meet and network with your GLBT neighbors in greater Alexandria.
