About GLAAS

SaddleBrooke is ranked one of the best places to retire in the Southwest. It is nestled in the beautiful Mountains just outside of Tucson Arizona, and boasts top notch amenities, including five restaurants, over 200 clubs, multiple golf courses, tennis and pickleball courts, swimming pools, fitness centers and activities. Clubs are a major part of the SaddleBrooke lifestyle.

Are you new to SaddleBrooke?  Looking to be part of a fun, social and educational group?  GLAAS (Gays, Lesbians and Allies at SaddleBrooke) is excited to welcome you.

GLAAS is a sanctioned club of Saddlebrooke whose mission is to celebrate the lives of Gays, Lesbians, Transgender, Queer persons and their Allies.  The organization was started in 2013 by a handful of folks and has grown to over 150 members.

You do not have to be LGBTQ+ to be a member of GLAAS.  Many of our members are heterosexual (or CIS) gender, and we call them our Allies.  To be an Ally you just have to be open minded, tolerant and accepting.  Many of our Allies have children, other family members and friends who are LGBTQ+ and being part of GLAAS is a way they can feel connected and supportive.

We are constantly striving to keep up with the changing ideas of society about sexual and gender equality and fairness and all the ramifications that such progress brings.   This gives our group plenty to talk about and explore.

Prior to the Pandemic, our parties and speaking events were widely known for their fun and for the opportunity to meet generous, inspirational and interesting people.  We hope to resume those activities when it is safe to do so.

During the Pandemic period, we have held a number of speaking events via ZOOM, and this past December, we engaged in a holiday fund drive for LGBTQ+ youth, who desperately need support.

If you are interested in joining us or want further information, send us an email at glaasclub@gmail.com.  Dues are only $15 a year.
