We open our membership to Pin@ys living in the greater Seattle area who are women of Philippine descent, including those who are migrants, immigrants and US-born. We recognize Pin@ys of mixed heritage and adoptees. We are part of the national women’s alliance, GABRIELA USA as well as BAYAN USA.
GAB Seattle is a LGBTIQ-(Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer/Questioning) friendly organization that is inclusive of transgender and gender non-conforming people of Philippine descent.
