MAP Membership Sign-Up

MAP membership is free, but is limited to staff and board members of LGBT nonprofits and/or major donors of the movement for LGBT equality. To qualify for MAP membership, donors must have contributed $10,000 or more to a single LGBT organization or cause within the last year. MAP requires that members maintain the confidentiality of, and do not publicly or otherwise distribute, any member-only materials. MAP also reserves the right to refuse or revoke membership of any individual or organization at any time.

 

To become a member, please provide us with the following information. Someone from MAP may contact you within the next 2 business days to verify your eligibility to become a MAP member. Click here to see our privacy policy.

 

Individual donors should list an LGBT organization/cause to whom they contributed at least $10,000 in the last year.

NOTE: In states that amend but do not re-issue birth certificates, it is obvious that the person's name and gender have been changed on the document. This has privacy and safety implications for the person to whom the amended birth certificate has been issued.
