Welcome to the home page of LGPA/GOAL Chicago!
LGPA/GOAL Chicago is an organization dedicated to law enforcement and other first responders whom are members of the LGBT community, whether out or not, in the greater Chicagoland area and surrounds. Many members of LGPA/GOAL serve as representatives of the LGBT Community within their respective departments, liaising between community members and the men and women they protect.
LGPA/GOAL Chicago is a fraternal organization that also welcomes supportive community members, called associate members, through the sponsorship of sworn members, to participate and further the spirit of understanding, acceptance, co-existence and cooperation that is required to bridge the gap of understanding between the diverse lifestyles that modern, urban life affords each of us.
During June of 2010, LGPA/GOAL Chicago is proud to have hosted the 14th Annual Conference of LGBT Criminal Justice Professionals at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago, and after the conference LGPA/GOAL Chicago and dozens of conference attendees marched in Chicago’s gay pride parade. The conference and parade were historic events in Chicago history.
