MIT's World-Wide LGBT Alumni Group

Welcome to the new BGLATA (formerly BGALA) website.  Our mission is to provide a social and professional network for MIT affiliates who are supportive of bisexual, gay, lesbian and transgender minorities, including a dedication to improving the quality of life for these minorities at the Institute and beyond.

We have a variety of annual events, the largest being the Annual Tech Reunion Reception, Educational Meetings on topics such as careers, LGBT interests and Legal Rights, bi-monthly lunches and summer boat cruises.

We're also looking to branch out to create more activities across the country.  Contact Michael Galvin '90 if you are interested in leading an activity in your area.
