The Sexuality And Gender Acceptance club, otherwise known as SAGA, strives to provide an accepting community for students and solve issues concerning the LGBTQ+ community. The club recently changed their name from GSA to SAGA for clarification of their club’s goals.
“We are trying to make it more accessible for kids that have not came out yet or are still trying to figure out what our club is,” Club President Clara Ford said.
Last year, SAGA conducted a bake sale in which the proceeds went to the LGBTQ+ youth homeless shelter, New Alliance.
This year, SAGA is trying to reconnect with New Alliance by visiting their shelter. They are also trying to go to a LGBTQ+ forum.
When members leave a SAGA club meeting, Ford wants students to be more informed about the LGBTQ+ community and current events.
Ford reflects, “SAGA has made me more confident and open-minded as well as help me develop this determination to help my LGBT brothers and sisters.
The club meets every other Friday after school in room 223.
