Who We Are
Portland Gay Volleyball (PGV) started as a recreational and social group in 1991. Our primary focus is to promote the sport of volleyball and provide a safe zone for the LGBTQ athlete and allies. In 2014, the group became Portland Gay Volleyball Club (PGVC), a nonprofit public benefit corporation and obtained tax exemption status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
NAGVA: North American Gay Volleyball Association
Since 1991 we have been a club member of the North American Gay Volleyball Association, better known as NAGVA. For more information on our "parent club" please visit: www.nagva.org.
Not only is our club a member but we are also the host city for the annual Portland Fall Ball which takes place in October. Please see our "TOURNAMENTS" page for more information on how to join a team or build and register one of your own.
We are committed to promoting the sport of volleyball in a non-exclusionary environment, embracing cultural diversity, and the development of all LGBTQ athletes and our allies which will allow us to grow our community locally, nationally, as well as worldwide.
