Are you new to SaddleBrooke? Looking to be part of a fun, social and educational group? GLAAS (Gays, Lesbians and Allies at SaddleBrooke) is excited to welcome you.
GLAAS is a sanctioned club of Saddlebrooke whose mission is to celebrate the lives of Gays, Lesbians, Transgender, Queer persons and their Allies. The organization was started in 2013 by a handful of folks and has grown to over 150 members.
You do not have to be LGBTQ to be a member of GLAAS. Many of our members are heterosexual (or CIS) gender, and we call them our Allies. To be an Ally you just have to be open minded, tolerant and accepting. Many of our Allies have children, other family members and friends who are LGBTQ and being part of GLAAS is a way they can feel connected and supportive.
We are constantly striving to keep up with the changing ideas of society about sexual and gender equality and fairness and all the ramifications that such progress brings. This gives our group plenty to talk about and explore.
During the Pandemic period, we held a number of speaking events via ZOOM, and this past December, we engaged in a virtual holiday fund drive for LGBTQ youth, who desperately need support. We are now returning to in-person gatherings, and we look forward to resuming our robust schedule and continued growth.
