Founded in 1990, NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ Journalists is an organization of journalists, media professionals, educators and students working from within the news industry to foster fair and accurate coverage of LGBTQ issues.

In April 1989, the American Society of Newspaper Editors (ASNE) mandated that ASNE conduct its first ever survey of LGBT journalists in American newspapers. In April 1990, Roy Aarons presented the results of the landmark survey, Alternatives: Gays and Lesbians in the Newsroom, at ASNE’s national convention in Washington, D.C. and simultaneously came out publicly.See more
