Welcome to Adirondack North Country Gender Alliance

We are a beacon of support and advocacy for gender diversity and inclusivity in our region. At ANCGA, we’re dedicated to fostering a community where individuals of all gender identities and expressions feel safe, respected, and celebrated.

ANCGA is more than just an organization; we’re a family of allies and individuals committed to championing equality and understanding. Founded on the principles of acceptance and empowerment, we stand firm in our mission to create a world free from discrimination based on gender.

Our mission is simple yet profound: to promote awareness, provide resources, and advocate for the rights and well-being of transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming individuals in the Adirondack North Country region. Through education, support, and collaboration, we strive to break down barriers and build bridges of understanding within our community.
