Please go here: San Francisco Bay Area Gay Lesbian Sierrans to join our group. GLS is an outings and conservation club for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered people, and our friends. We are an official activities section of the Bay Chapter of the Sierra Club. Founded in 1986, the Bay Chapter GLS was the Sierra Club's first gay and lesbian activities section. We're still one of the largest of a growing number of GLS chapters around the country. Throughout the year, we sponsor a variety of activities which offer something for almost everyone who enjoys the outdoors. GLS outings run the gamut from easy urban strolls to vigorous peak hikes; relaxed car camping to demanding wilderness backpacks and naturalist-led walks; to hands-on restoration and trail maintenance projects. Everyone is welcome on our outings, whether or not they have joined GLS.
