Eisenhower, Richards, and Shepard’s Gay-Straight Alliances (GSA) attended ‘The Big Queer Gathering’, hosted by Elmhurst College on Dec. 8, 2017 from 5 p.m. – 9:45 p.m.

24 of students from the three schools’ GSAs visited Elmhurst College for The Big Queer Gathering. This year the total number of attendees was limited due to the event being overcrowded the year before.

The gathering started with an hour and a half long Q&A session featuring LGBTQ students from Elmhurst colleges. Following it were workshops pertaining to the queer community such as representation in media and LGBT problems around the world today. The party concluded with a dance and a t-shirt raffle with food and drink being provided throughout the event.

“I think this event is very important for students,” explains Sandra Wasserman, club sponsor. “It allows them to meet with college students who are out and can provide a window into the future of their lives as an LGBTQ.”

Eisenhower’s GSA meets every other Wednesday after school at 3:30 p.m. in room 322. Their next meeting will be held January 17, 2018. See Wasserman for any questions.
