Lesbian and Gay Parents and Friends Alliance
When this group began more than 15 years ago, parents hoped to make the school community a more welcoming environment for children from gay and lesbian families. Ongoing meetings with faculty and staff are held to explore language choice and teachable moments in discussing gay and lesbian issues, and the dialogue is ongoing.
The Lesbian and Gay Parents and Friends Alliance (LGPFA) is for same-sex parents and their allies who may be interested in exploring diversity at GFS or socializing with other like-minded parents. It offers support and camaraderie for families with gay or lesbian relatives, or with children exploring issues of their own sexuality. Members of the LGPFA are interested in how the GFS community deals with issues that surround homophobia and heterosexism, and sponsor social events and discussions that may be of interest to our families and allies. For more information, please contact the parent co-chairs or the Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
