Nothing is more important than Community

About Us

Our Vision

 Tyler Area Gays, firmly planted in the spirit of true community, embraces the concept of strength in numbers, believing we can accomplish more together than we could ever hope to achieve alone.  Tyler Area Gays is fed and energized by selfless love and compassion, understanding that there are times when each of us may need a helping hand or a sympathetic ear.  Tyler Area Gays promotes an environment where all may feel free to be themselves without fear of repression or repercussion and where all are encouraged to share their knowledge and support with others.  Tyler Area Gays seeks inclusion and understanding as it stands against hate and violence, whether physical or emotional.  We celebrate our own immensely diverse community of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and straight allies.
