Hello and welcome to the Brookline High SChool GSA livejournal community. You may already know about the concept of GSA's-gay straight aliances- in schools and communites in general. GSA is the most common title, but over the years the need to become more inclusive has increased. So, in order to be familiar to other such organizations, we are a GSA, but include all varieties of the spectrum- Gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, transexual, undefined, queer, questioning, straight, allies, the list goes on and on because the spectrum is wide!
our own GSA meets every Monday and Wednesday afternoon after school to discuss issues, our lives, events, news, and all sorts of things. We would like to welcome many to contribute to this community, however, as it would be great to know about the activities of other GSA's around the country [and world?!], as well as to give an opportunity to those who do not have one at their school, and/or are embarking on creating one.
So come on in to this community to share, from personal stories to news to upcoming events to just cool info, coverage of pride parades to hate crimes, etc etc etc. Thank you!
p.s. sorry if a lot of the entries are specific to our gsa, but hey it's a way to get word around.
Update: Here are some of our friends/relevant communities:
