I have formed a new group called the Gay-Straight Alliance, or GSA for short.
The first GSAs were started in the 1980’s in American schools. They are student-led groups overseen by a responsible teacher, which Ms Tillyer has kindly agreed to do. The intention of every GSA is to provide a safe and supportive environment for LGBT+ students (or those who are perceived as such) and their straight allies. The GSA is a safe space to talk about LGBT+ issues and learn about the community and the people within it.
We will be meeting lunchtime every day 5, which is a Friday, in N003, which is upstairs in the Year 9 area. The GSA is open to everyone from all year levels.
