    This is a group for like-minded real estate professionals interested in networking and getting to know new people who are in the industry, both LGBTQ and non-LGBTQ. As I’m sure some of you will agree, I feel that LGBTQ folks are sometimes sequestered in an industry which has been ruled historically by straight, white men. I myself am a commercial real estate appraiser and have yet to meet another like myself in my niche. I am definitely swimming in those straight, white waters and I have to say it has not been without its difficulties and rewards as well. However, I do think that it is an important task to be done in order to break through barriers which have been in place in these types of industries for far too long. Luckily, times are surely but slowly changing and I think it would be great to meetup, meet, get to know, and support like minded professionals in the real estate industry in a friendly and fun setting so come one come all whether you’re an appraiser, broker, property manager, investor, broker’s assistant, urban planner, etc. or anyone in our community interested in real estate. And we even welcome our straight friends who support us, I don’t believe in fostering an environment of exclusivity, we have enough of that already! BTW I am not all doom and gloom and YES I DO know how to have my fun! 🙂

    Gayglers chapters exist just about everywhere Google operates around the world from San Francisco to New York, London to Zurich, Israel to India. The grassroots approach that started the Gayglers continues to allow our LGBT celebrations and initiatives to thrive and grow.

    To date in 2012, more than 1,500 Googlers have marched in Pride celebrations, including Boston, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Sao Paulo, Tel Aviv and Warsaw. However, it’s not just through Pride that we show our support for the LGBT community. At Mardi Gras in Sydney, we hosted two Queer Thinking seminars on Activism in the Internet Age and Queer Careers. And in July, Gayglers from over a dozen counties celebrated at World Pride in London where they were joined by one million visitors from around the world.

    Though our business and employees span the globe, our policies on non-discrimination are universal in every Google office. Google supports its Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) employees in many ways to ensure that our employees are treated fairly both inside and outside of Google. We increased our Transgender benefits to be more comprehensive, have taken a public stance on Proposition 8 in California, participated in the It Get’s better Video Project, made a video on Marriage Equality, and maintain strong partnerships with Out & Equal and the Human Rights Campaign among many others.
