Welcome! The Idaho Association of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Issues in Counseling was officially a state Division of the Idaho Counseling Association as of July 1st, 2015. In 2020, we joined our national association in becoming the Society for Sexual, Affectional, Intersex, and Gender Expansive Identities (SAIGE) Idaho.
The mission of SAIGE Idaho is to improve the counseling services and quality of life for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ+) individuals through education and advocacy. We believe all individuals should be free to develop their full potential regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. We recognize the unique challenges LGBTQ+ individuals face as a result of systemic oppression.
The vision of SAIGE Idaho is to promote awareness, understanding, competency and best practices among helping professions in service delivery, collaboration and advocacy within the LGBTQ+ community.
All membership dues are one year from date of processing.
