The North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance (NAGAAA) is a non-profit, international association of gay and lesbian softball leagues.

NAGAAA was founded in 1977 and the first elected Commissioner was Warren Shepell, from Toronto, Canada and currently has 44 member leagues in the United States and Canada. Teams representing these leagues participate in the NAGAAA Gay Softball World Series (GSWS), hosted each year in a different member city. The 2013 Gay Softball World Series is being hosted by Chesapeake and Potomac Softball League in Washington, D.C., August 26–31, 2013.

Future sites for the Gay Softball World Series are Dallas, Texas in 2014 and Columbus, Ohio in 2015.

NAGAAA has five divisions of play, from the competitive A rank through B, C and D teams, plus a Masters Division for players age 50 and above.

In 2011, NAGAAA clarified its policy to include bisexual and transgender players.[1]
