About: The National Gay Pilots’ Association is the world’s largest organization of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender aviation professionals and enthusiasts.

Since 1990 the mission has been simple: to build, support, and unite the LGBTQ aviation community worldwide. Over thirty years ago a handful of gay pilots discreetly gathered in Provincetown, Massachusetts. They coordinated their meeting by responding to an ad and agreeing to wear an aviation themed t-shirt in order to identify each other. Anonymity was maintained by not using any last names since they risked losing their jobs or dishonorable discharge from the military for being gay. This was the first NGPA event. It’s from these humble beginnings that a global movement was born.
