Our Approach

Our Mission

The mission of SAIGE includes the recognition of both individual and social contexts presenting the confluence of race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation, ability, age, spiritual or religious belief system, and indigenous heritage.

Our Story

SAIGE began in 1975, when Joe Norton called for interested parties at the New York convention to discuss the feasibility of a lesbian and gay organization within the American Personnel and Guidance Association (ACA's name then).

Our Elders

Our elders have opened doors for our communities, our fields, and our organization. They are an important part of our story.
