We are delighted glifaa president Jeff Anderson was invited to welcome Secretary Blinken and hope this is a testament to the Department’s commitment to protection of LGBT+ people in the United States and all over the world.

In 2020, we worked hard in order to honor our founding members and tell the story of glifaa to the best of our ability. Since March 8, 1992, glifaa was a home for many LGBT+ employees in foreign affairs agencies. We partnered with the National Museum for American Diplomacy to tell the story of glifaa: Serving with Pride- The History of LGBT+ Pride in Foreign Affairs Agencies.
