GSA - Gay Straight Alliance.
or Gender-Sexuality Alliance
The Harvest Park GSA wants to provide a sense of community and a space for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning (LGBTQQ) students and their straight, ally friends to build a social network where their identity is respected.
We will function as a support group and provide safety and confidentiality to students who are struggling with their identity or those who are experiencing harassment at school because of their actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity or expression. We will provide a safe, friendly, social school environment for students to be themselves.
We feel this is a great way to build community at our school and lessen the isolation that LGBTQQ students might otherwise experience. We would also like to work toward educating staff and students about the issues LGBTQQ students and allies may face and about who we are as students. Our mission is to achieve respect and acceptance for all students regardless of sexual orientation or political view on that matter.
