Mission

Proudly advancing diversity and equity in U.S. foreign affairs agencies and promoting LGBT human rights around the world 

GLIFAA works to secure fair treatment of LGBT colleagues in the United States and overseas.  For Foreign Service, Civil Service, contract or other employees, we act to break down barriers resulting from prejudice, misunderstanding or apathy within our institutions.  We provide a support network and information resources for employees and retirees and their families.  As foreign policy professionals, we support LGBT people struggling against discrimination and persecution abroad.  We also engage with partner organizations in the U.S. and internationally to advance all these goals.
