GSA (Gay Straight Alliance) » GSA


The Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) of Roosevelt High School brings together gay youth and welcomes their straight allies (as well as teachers), to fight homophobia on the campus and in the community, advocating for equal treatment for youth of all sexual orientations. Our GSA will create a school environment free of homophobic, sexual, verbal, and physical harassment. We also hang out, eat , and have fun: we will co-ordinate outings, dances, movie nights, and other activities. In addition to talking about relevant issues, members can bring up personal issues they are facing by using one-on-one or group discussion. We hope to create a safe place to offer support, resources, and comradery. Our #1 rule is confidentiality: No-one is identified as gay or straight. We are all individuals in favor of a common cause, for whatever reason.
