Lesbian and Gay Parents and Friends Alliance
GFS parents launched the Lesbian and Gay Parents and Friends Alliance (LGPFA) with the vision of making our school community a more welcoming environment for children from gay and lesbian families.
The 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. Ongoing meetings with faculty and staff are held to explore language choice and teachable moments in discussing gay and lesbian issues.
