Gender, Sex, and Sexuality Alliance (GSSA)

Statement of Purpose/Organization Description: Gender, Sex, and Sexuality Alliance supports all sexual minorities, orientations, and expressions that involve one or more persons who are legally capable of giving informed consent. GSSA also supports the right of persons to identify and express their gender according to their own definitions. GSSA educates others about the diversity of gender and sexuality while emphasizing the observation of health and safety practices. GSSA advocates for the rights and dignity of those who have been marginalized because of ignorance of or prejudice toward those with unconventional gender, sex, or sexualities.
