What is GSA?
Dunkirk High School GSA exists to create a safe, welcoming, and accepting school environment for all youth, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. We provide a place to socialize and to engage in awareness activities. We strive to educate others about LGBTQ+ issues.
Our GSA allows LGBTQ+ and Straight students to work together addressing issues that affect all students, including harassment and discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
Who can attend GSA?
Our GSA is open to anyone, LGBTQ+ and Straight allies. We ask that you be respectful, non-judgmental, supportive and open-minded.
When and Where?
GSA meets the second and fourth Thursday of every month from 3:00 – 4:00 in room 203.
