On Saturday, May 20th, a CVHS club, the Gay Straight Alliance, hosted an end of the school year Pride Picnic at George-George Park. The turn out was awesome and the food was delicious! Sarah Garlock even made rainbow cookies to celebrate the community and their LGBTQ+ flag! While attending the picnic, I talked to some of the students about their year in the club, and their hopes for the future of GSA.

How did things go in the club this year? 

James Mackey: It was good. It feels great to help people understand more about the LGBTQ+ community, as well as get our name out there.

Angel Garrity: I feel like things were a lot more organized this year than they were in the previous year. It was a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to come back for meetings next year!

Do you think the end of the year picnic was a good idea? 

James Mackey: I think the picnic was a very good idea. It helped us get to know people from other schools, and it was really just a good way to finish out the school year with the club.

Angel Garrity: Of course I think the picnic was a good idea. I definitely think that the club should do more stuff like the picnic next year.

What’s next for Gay Straight Alliance? 

James Mackey: Next week, we elect officers and prepare things for next year. Hopefully, we plan more events and things to help raise funds.

Angel Garrity: At the next meeting, we’ll be electing new officers, a new President, and a new Vice President. I’m hoping I get elected for the treasurer position. We plan on coming up with new ways to raise funds and really get our club name out there.

What are some things you hope to change about the club next year? 

James Mackey: I really want to get our name out there and establish ourselves better. I don’t even think the school recognizes us as a legitimate club.  I feel like not enough people know about who we are and what we do.

Angel Garrity: I hope we do more out of school, and even in school activities. The club is extremely organized already, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t a few areas we could probably work on and improve in.

The Gay Straight Alliance invites anyone who wants to join to come to the next meeting on May 25th to elect new officers for next year’s club. GSA meets in room 124 every Thursday from 2:11pm-3:15pm, and anyone is welcome to join!
