Serving as president of a major employee LGBT+ organization is both a privilege and a challenge, exhausting but always gratifying. If you would like to know more of our work this year, visit our new web page at www.glifaa.org. There you will find information on our initiatives, our history, and photos from our various events.
If you were familiar with our old web site and literature, you will notice that we have a new tag line: GLIFAA -- LGBT+ pride in foreign affairs agencies. This year's board of directors under the leadership of yours truly is doing all it can to become more diverse and inclusive. No longer does GLIFAA represent only gays and lesbians. We have a number of transgender members both in the US and at posts around the world. Our doors are open to all flavors of orientation and identity wherever they may be on the bright LGBT+ rainbow. If you are in the Washington, DC, area, come to one of our monthly meetings, happy hours, or other social events. If you are outside the US, you may find that there is a GLIFAA representative at a U.S. embassy or consulate near you (www.glifaa.org/about/post-representatives/).
