Gay Straight Alliance (GSA)

Mission


Hello, Curious Venturer, from the PPCHS Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA)! At the GSA, we believe tolerance for all people despite their differences is an important part of living safely and happily. We’re here to send that message across campus, because everyone here should feel comfortable and secure.

Meetings


At club meetings, we’ll discuss homophobia and ways to prevent it, plan activities and events, and have guest speakers. But keep in mind that we stand up for all types of people, and everyone is welcome! If you’d like some further information, contact our President, Sponsor or attend our next meeting.
