The National Gay Basketball Association (NGBA) was founded in 2004 with the mission of organizing the LGBT basketball community to be able to speak with one voice in the larger LGBT Sports Community. In 2005, the NGBA was incorporated and granted 501c3 non-profit status to fulfill the mission of bringing the game of basketball to LGBT players across the United States and the world.

Why we do it

For many of us, we grew up thinking we were the only LGBT basketball player in the world.  We do this to make sure whoever wants to play LGBT basketball has the opportunity to access information and support to play the game. Visibility is the only way we can help others #BETRUE and play the game they love.
