WELCOME TO ALGBTICAL


The Association for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Issues in Counseling of Alabama (ALGBTICAL) is an official state branch of the national organization, the Association for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Issues in Counseling (ALGBTIC), and is an official state division of the Alabama Counseling Association (ALCA).

ALGBTICAL seeks to promote greater awareness and understanding of sexual minority issues among members of the counseling profession, related helping occupations, their clients, and the community.

ALGBTICAL is an organization of dedicated advocates, allies, and activists. They are an organization of compassionate professionals that provide counselors and other skilled helpers common ground, support, and resources for their work with sexual orientation and sexual identity.

 

Working in a wide range of counseling and counseling-related fields, and in a variety of settings, it is important that we find ways to connect with each other around issues that affect sexual minorities, including persons who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning.

People fail to get along with each other because they fear each other.
They fear each other because they donít know each other. 
They donít know each other because they have not properly communicated with each other.
