Gay Straight Alliance/Gender Sexuality Alliance
SAFE works to promote the social acceptance and inclusion of LGBT people in order to create an island free of stigma and discrimination where they enjoy freedom and equality at all levels of society. We also promote LGBT empowerment through self awareness and community education and represent collective interests.
In 2017 SAFE hopes to launch a Gay Straight Alliance or Gender Sexuality Alliance (GSA) for high school students. We are looking for a central location to hold this monthly gathering. The goal of the GSA is to bring LGBT students from the different high schools together with allies from the various schools in a safe environment to discuss issues impacting them. LGBT youth have indicated that they feel pressured at school and sometimes bullied. We are hoping to create a support system of peers to alleviate this. This project should last a year and will resume based on success.
