Gay-Straight Alliance

Co-Advisor: Ms. La Giusa & Ms. Riedeman

Keep up with us on our Facebook page!

The Saugus Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) is a student-run club which provides a safe place for students to meet, support each other, talk about issues related to sexual orientation, and work to end homophobia. It is a wonderful social outlet for GLBTQ students and their straight allies.

Other functions of the GSA are:
~~a support group and provide safety and confidentiality to students who are struggling with their identity as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or questioning.
~~educating themselves and the broader school community about sexual orientation and gender identity issues.
~~bring in outside speakers to cover a particular topic such as GLBTQ history.
~~organize a "Pride Week" or "GLBTQ Awareness Events" and offer a series of educational workshops, panels, and
pride celebrations.
~~work to get GLBTQ issues represented in the curriculum, GLBTQ related books in the library, and progressive non-discrimination policies implemented

Historically we have participated in the Day of Silence, a day when participants remain silent all day as a way of acknowledging the silence induced by homophobia in our society. We have also held a"Teach the Teachers" meeting which focuses on teaching school staff how to be better allies for GLBTQ students. GSA members presented scenarios about discrimination or harassment and encouraged teachers to respond to those situations.

Possible Saugus High School Gay-Straight Alliance activities are:
~~movie nights, and
~~attend conferences together

GSAs are a great way to build community at our school and lessen the isolation that GLBTQ students might otherwise experience.

Lit Mag students work as a team throughout the school year, collecting student-submitted poems, stories, essays, art and photography, as well as creating their own original work. Evaluated anonymously by the class, the best submissions are chosen for publication in our annual yearbook of the arts. Using contemporary software, such as Adobe Photoshop CS, design students create The Centinel layout, which is then professionally offset-printed through local printer, DiFatta Graphics.
