Columbus Lesbian and Gay Softball Association
Columbus, Ohio
Founded: 1986

We are proud the words lesbian and gay are prominent in our name. In 2008, 28 teams competed in four divisions. CLGSA is the largest gay sports organization in Ohio and one of the largest softball leagues in the country. This is notable because we are a mid-sized Midwestern city. We also launched our first fall league using a draft format. The format combined players of all skill levels and facilitated many new friendships. In 2008, despite torrential rains, our annual drag softball game (Bat-n-Rouge) raised $15,000 for local charities. And the highlight of our year, the CLGSA officially joined NAGAAA and won the bid to host the 2010 NAGAAA World Series.
San Francisco Gay Basketball Association
San Francisco, California
Founded: 1986

Started in 1986, SFGBA is the oldest continuous gay basketball program nationally. We have enjoyed outstanding success in NGBA-sanctioned tournaments, including Men’s Open Division gold at Gay Games VII. In 2008 two SF teams, Rockdogs and Shock, won four NGBA tournaments. Last year SFGBA coordinated with LOGO Channel in its reality series “Shirts & Skins,” a documentary featuring the Rockdogs team, which aired fall 2008. Incorporated in January 2008 as a qualifying 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, last year SFGBA awarded charitable contributions to Cheer San Francisco and LYRIC, both qualifying non-profits. In running our weekly, open play pick-up games program and also the Castro Basketball League with fall and spring seasons, we provide scholarships to all participants lacking means to pay.
