Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual (LGBTQIA+) Affinity Group

Contact coordinator: [email protected]

Mission: The LGBTQIA+ Affinity Group provides a space for LGBTQIA+ dance/movement therapists to gather, dialogue, build relationship, and create community.

Vision: The LGBTQIA+ Affinity Group envisions all LGBTQIA+ members to feel seen, heard, felt, and welcomed in the American Dance Therapy Association.

Values: The LGBTQIA+ Affinity Group values intersectional feminist approaches to relationship and collective liberation. By valuing intersectional feminism this group acknowledges the ways in which overlapping systems of oppression affect its members, those we serve, and the organization at large. By valuing collective liberation we dismiss the common one savior narrative and instead view the strength of our wholeness as greater than the sum of our parts.

This group is for anyone who:

  • Identifies as LGBTQI+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex) + stands for the infinite amount of identities related to sexual orientation and gender identity that are not included in LGBTQI.
  • Identifies as questioning or curious
  • Identifies as two-spirit or any other non-western gender identity or sexual orientation
*If you are straight and cisgender and would like to practice allyship please consider joining the Allies for Social Justice Group.
