Unfortunately due to the spread of COVID-19, we have cancelled all GLAD events scheduled in March. The health of our supporters, community, and the general public is of paramount importance to us. We will continue to assess the status of our future events on a case by case basis as the situation evolves and we will reach out with updates regarding specific events. You can also check glad.org or follow us on social media to keep up to date with GLAD’s work in the meantime. Connect on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.


Are you a trailblazer? Then join GLAD Forward – GLAD’s young leaders group – for a light hike in the geological wonder of Purgatory Chasm in Western MA.

Our friends at the Venture Out Project facilitate outdoor experiences for the queer and trans community in a safe and inclusive environment. They’ll provide us with a day trip where people of all skill levels can get into the beauty and fun of the great outdoors. Make new friends, enjoy the fleeting New England spring weather, and get some hiking photos for the ‘gram.

Tickets include transportation to and from Boston, a guided hiking tour, a super cute GLAD water bottle, and an update on our work for LGBTQ justice.
