What does the GSA club have to offer students outside of events and activities?

Club President Jeremy King suggests that The Gay Straight Alliance Club offers students insight on things such as race, sexuality, and domestic violence, as well as Information on STIs, STDs, and HIV, as an added benefit of joining this club.

This is why the GSA club is so important, King explains. It gives students something to grow from, be proud of, and belong to.

Co-Advisors, Professor Kathy Ruby and Dr. Heidi Browne, offer members council, support, and recognition in addition to providing awareness.

Ruby agrees that the awareness and acceptance of today’s youth is vital.

Ruby looks to open the minds of students and unify members regardless of their sexual preference, race, and different opinions.

The GSA encourages students to attend the up-and-coming R.A.I.N.N Day (Rape Assault Incest National Network), which will be held In the Fine Arts Building on Thursday, Sept. 27, from 4 – 6 p.m.
