LGBTQ+ Rights Committee


The LGBTQ+ Rights Committee hosts hybrid (in-person at the ACBA headquarters and virtually via Zoom) meetings on the first Thursday of the month from 1 to 2 p.m.

  • LGBTQ+ - A person who is lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (or questioning), plus. The "plus" is inclusive of sexual and gender minorities that are not specifically covered by the other five initials.

The LGBTQ+ Rights Committee brings together lawyers, judges, law professors, law students and other legal professionals interested in addressing discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity and expression, and advancing equality for sexual minority persons and their families. The Committee seeks to create educational, networking and mentoring opportunities for LGBTQ+ individuals and their allies. The Committee will monitor, make recommendations and conduct educational programming on issues and developments in the law having an impact on LGBTQ+ people in the public and in the legal profession.
