The Beaverton High School Gay-Straight Alliance is a student-led group that works to promote equality for all members of our school, regardless of religion, grade, race, social group, political affiliation, gender identity, or sexual orientation. We at GSA respect the confidentiality of all group members, and we welcome anyone with an open mind who is ready to accept others and their differing points of view.
GSA members value diversity, respect, acceptance, and equality for all members of our school. GSA advocates for and encourages members to have pride in themselves and who they are, no matter what their orientation or identity may be.
Through education of ourselves, our peers, and the staff, we as an organization stand up for the equal rights of all people. We exist to spread awareness about the issues faced by, and to provide a safe haven for, lesbian, gay, transgender, bisexual, asexual, intersex, and questioning students, as well as their allies.
We at GSA strive to make a difference in our school, in our community, with our peers, and in our own lives.
