The HHS Gay Straight Alliance is a student based group that meets every Tuesday in the co-op office.  Any interested student may attend.  Sexual orientation is not part of our membership criteria. The group is comprised of students who are concerned about homophobia and discrimination that may occur against school and community members who may be Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Questioning or Transsexual. This may or may not include concerns about family members, people in the community, individuals in the school, themselves and so on.  The focus of the group is the promotion of a non-discriminating and inclusive atmosphere at HHS.

See Mr. Bird or Ms. McLean-Wilson for more information
