The Sierra Club is a national organization that is broken down into local chapters. The Silicon Valley region is in the Loma Prieta Chapter. Each chapter contains multiple Activity Sections. The Gay and Lesbian Sierrans (GLS) compose an activity section within the Loma Prieta chapter. (There are GLS activity sections in many chapters.)
