Affordable Membership Structure
GLMA's membership structure reflects the multidisciplinary nature of our membership, and provides flexibility in supporting GLMA’s mission with a convenient, tax-deductible membership contribution.
Please consider joining or renewing your membership as an Advocate, Partner or Leader for LGBTQ Health, or at any other amount which your budget allows.
The basic Health Professional Membership is priced to encourage membership across all disciplines and professions. Your contributions above the basic membership level are a significant investment in GLMA’s policy and advocacy efforts to advance LGBTQ health equality.
A more detailed list of the New Membership Levels and Benefits can be found here.
Become a Sustaining Member
A Sustaining Membership allows you to make small contributions each month or quarter while making a big impact for LGBTQ healthcare equality. We will process your contribution by credit card once a month or quarter, so your membership will never lapse and you will never have to renew.
You can be a Sustaining Member at the Advocate for LGBTQ Health level for only $25 a month.
Most GLMA members join to support our advocacy.
Since 1981, GLMA has been working for equality in healthcare for LGBTQ patients and providers. Learn more about
GLMA is an interdisciplinary association for all healthcare professionals.
Our members are physicians, researchers, nurses, physician assistants, counselors, health policy advocates, dentists, faculty members, administrators, and from many other healthcare professions.
We work in LGBTQ health centers and clinics, governments agencies, community based non-profits, private practice, educational institutions, insurance companies and healthcare systems.
Some of us are still preparing for our chosen profession; others are retired and still involved in promoting equality.
We hope that GLMA can be a home for you too.
Building a Community
While some of us have the benefit of working for LGBTQ friendly employers, not everyone does. Some professions and medical schools can be particularly homophobic and transphobic. GLMA offers opportunities to build a community within our community.
The annual conference also offers opportunities to network professionally with others in your specialty, or from around the country.
Student members and professionals alike have the chance to form mentoring relationships and all members can be listed within and also search our member directory to find others in your region or specialty.
| ||Annual Conference |
Members who are healthcare professionals also qualify for a discounted registration to our annual conference, where participants can earn up to 20 CME credits or CEUs, while also keeping current on the latest research and updates in clinical care. Members are also invited to the complimentary membership luncheon.
Online Provider Directory
LGBTQ health disparities exist, in part, because of patients difficultly in finding culturally competent healthcare providers. While advocacy and education will eliminate these barriers someday, GLMA wants all healthcare consumers to be able to find an LGBTQ friendly and welcoming provider today. We offer free listings in our provider directory for all LGBTQ friendly providers, including our allies who are “straight for equality.”
- Free listings include: a primary address and phone number, your specialties, licensing or credential info, and an email address.
- Enhanced Listings for members also include: priority placement in search results, GLMA membership signifier, educational background, map & directions, a personal statement, additional office information, a photo and website address.
Members also receive copies of the weekly LGBTQ Health Digest, action alerts, members only email updates, and the quarterly GLMA Report.
You can also follow GLMA on Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin.
