Formed in as Lesbian and Gay Bands of America when seven independent bands met formally in Chicago, the Association has grown to 38 member organizations including international bands. LGBA remains dedicated to its original goals of providing a network of lesbian and gay bands at all stages of development, promoting music as a medium of communication among people, improving the quality of artistic and organizational aspects of member bands, and stimulating public interest in the unique art form of community band music in our culture. Lesbian and Gay Band Association meets annually in different cities to plan events, encourage the formation of new bands, and share the gift of music with gay and non-gay audiences. Seminars on topics such as musicianship, programming, and organizational skills are held in addition to general business and committee meetings. Great performances are the most visible manifestation of the lesbian and gay band movement.
