What should GSAs do?

Every GSA looks different from the next. GSAs can be any or all of or beyond the following:

  • A safe space to eat your lunch once a week
  • An advocacy and education group
  • A peer support group

Regardless of the activities that each GSA chooses to partake in, it should be run by students.

Some ideas for GSA activities/discussion can be:

  • Watching LGBTQ themed movies and discussing them.
  • Talking about current LGBTQ events
  • Learning about the complex history of queer and trans people.
  • Discussing gender/sex norms
  • Discussing identity labels
  • Sharing coming out stories
  • Discussing family and life goals
