LGBTQ Parents and Friends Association
GFS parents launched the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans Queer (LGBTQ) Parents and Friends Association with the vision of making our school community a more welcoming environment for all of our children.
The LGBTQ 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 LGBTQ 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.
