Meet the San Antonio LGBT Bar Association

Thursday, March 15, 2018

The recently formed San Antonio LGBT Bar, a 501(c)(3), was established primarily to educate the bar, bench, and public on cutting-edge issues in LGBT law. Join them for summer CLE, spring and fall social events, and community service projects including a project to promote diversity in the bar and, in partnership with SAYLA, a directory of local judges desiring to perform same-sex marriages. The LGBT Bar will host these events and facilitate these projects only with the support of lawyers in our community, such as their Presenting Sponsors The Aguirre Law Firm, The Nichols Law Firm, Jackson Walker, and a sponsorship In Memory of Congressman Henry B. Gonzalez – Champion for Equal Rights for All, and Supporting Sponsor Gaul & Dumont.

The Spring Social Event will be a happy hour for members at Luther’s Cafe (1503 N Main Ave, San Antonio, TX 78212) next Thursday, March 22nd, from 5:30-7:30. If you’d like to be a participating member of the organization, General Membership is only $30. If you’d like to support the organization by becoming an Associate Member, the amount is $20 for the year. Members will also be able to attend social and CLE events this year free of charge. You can sign up to become a member on the website’s membership page.

If you have any questions about the LGBT Bar, would like to get involved or stay updated with events, you can email, check out their website at, and  Like them on Facebook. Support local bars!
