Gay-Straight Alliance
Although the Gay-Straight Alliance focuses on issues affecting people with a same-sex or multiple-sex orientation, it comprises members of all sexual orientations. The Gay-Straight Alliance is also an assumption-free zone – just because you belong does not mean you are or will be thought of as homosexual or bisexual, or even bi-curious.

Issues close to the heart of the Gay-Straight Alliance include acceptance of people of all sexual orientations, acceptance of transgendered persons, fighting against AIDS, and remembering those who tragically committed suicide. It is not, however, all serious. The Gay-Straight Alliance also has parties and fun activities.

If you are sympathetic to these causes, try the Gay-Straight Alliance!
