LGBTQ and Planning
The LGBTQ and Planning Division of APA is a forum for the exchange of ideas and information of interest to people in the planning profession who identify as part of the LGBTQ community and anyone who is interested in LGBTQ community issues.
The division addresses planning topics and issues that relate to the LGBTQ community by providing a forum for exchanging ideas and information. It provides a professional network for planners who are division members and a mechanism that allows friends of the division and the LGBTQ community to collaborate and support the division's mission.
The LGBTQ and Planning Division evolved in 2016 from the Gays and Lesbians in Planning (GALIP) Division that was created as a formal APA division in 1998 at the APA National Planning Conference in Boston. We've been an informal network since 1992 when we met for the first time at the national conference in Washington, D.C.
