On National Coming Out Day, the DGA’s LGBTQ+ Committee invites you to display your pride with our newly designed icons that can be used across social media to identify as either a proud LGBTQ+ member or ally! You can download the images directly from this page and upload to the social media platform of your choice.

The DGA's LGBTQ+ Committee is devoted to strengthening the community within the Guild, forging partnerships, and fostering opportunities for those who are underrepresented. We encourage interested members to self-identify with the DGA and/or LGBTQ+ Committee via the DGA website as we work hand-in-hand to build a more equitable industry.
