Our Mission

The NEA-GLBT Caucus, in order to eliminate institutional discrimination and homophobia, monitors and participates in the development of NEA policies and activities, provides resources and fosters better communication among educators, students, and communities.

About Us

The National Education Association Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Caucus was founded in the 1980s by a handful of NEA Members seeking to provide a means of professional support for gay and lesbian colleagues.

This website is designed to provide information and resources to the over 3 million members of the NEA who work each day to facilitate relevance and rigor to America's Public Schools.

The NEA-GLBT Caucus works to provide educators, education support professionals, and students, with safe schools free of anti-LGBTQ+ bias and intolerance, and to provide sound education programs for all students.


In response to numerous requests, the National Education Association Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Caucus has compiled a list of age appropirate books as a resource for educators. Click here to download the list. Additional book resources are available under here.
