Who We Are

The Modern Military Association of America (MMAA) is the nation’s largest organization of LGBTQ+ service members, military spouses, veterans, their families, and allies. Formed through the merger of the American Military Partner Association and OutServe-SLDN, we are a united voice for the LBGTQ+ military and veteran community.

Our Mission

MMAA is working to make a real difference in the lives of our modern military families through education, advocacy, and support.

Our Vision

MMAA is working to ensure LGBTQ service members, veterans and their families have the support and resources they need and deserve in service to our great country.

As we work to uphold the civil rights progress made on behalf of the LGBTQ+ community, we are working to: 

  • Educate elected officials on anti-LGBTQ+ laws’ negative impact
