Welcome to the Gay and Lesbian Sierrans (GLS) section of the Loma Prieta Chapter.

GLS is an official activity section of the Sierra Club . We offer the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered community a variety of outdoor activities, including day hikes, car camping weekends, and backpack trips, and encourage participation in the Sierra Club's mission to explore, enjoy and protect the wild places of the earth.

GLS operates under bylaws approved by the Loma Prieta Chapter of the Sierra Club. Matters such as establishing the outing calendar, certifying outing leaders, publishing the newsletter, and managing the finances, are entrusted to the Governing Committee , which is elected at the end of each year.

You do not have to be a member of GLS to participate in our activities but we do encourage you to join. As a member, you'll receive our bimonthly newsletter, the Wild Side, in electronic form.

If you are new to GLS feel free to request a complimentary copy of the Wild Side.

To keep in closer touch with what's going on, you can join our email list.

If you want to get further involved, please consider becoming an outing leader or joining the governing committee.
