Since its establishment in 1989, OPALGA ( the Oak Park Area Lesbian and Gay Association) is one of the largest community-based, multi-purpose lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered membership organizations in Illinois. Boasting membership not only from Oak Park, River Forest, Berwyn, Forest Park and Brookfield but also from surrounding suburbs and Chicago proper. An ever growing number of "organizations and businesses" are joining OPALGA as organizational members who wish to keep abreast of LGBT community activities.

Diverse from its inception, OPALGA has strived to provide leadership and direction in three separate arenas; group-based support for person's questioning or exploring their sexual orientation, political activism to promote and insure non-discrimination in the community and cultural expression unique to the LGBTQ community. To that end, the organization has been an important presence to countless individuals who have sought shelter and support, creative expression allowing their voice to be heard or a launching pad to initiate public reform.
