Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirits (BAAITS) is a community-based volunteer organization offering culturally relevant activities for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and intersex Native Americans, their families, and friends.

American society commonly identifies Two-Spirit People as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender.
BAAITS comes together to socialise, share, and network in an alcohol and drug-free environment. BAAITS sees itself as an organisation for Two-Spirit people to explore their rich heritage in a safe environment. To that end, BAAITS is committed to offering culturally relevant activities for LGBT individuals of Native American ancestry and their families and friends.
