“It provides an inviting environment for LGBTQ students and allies here at Lakewood,” he said. “It has components of social clubs like game club and service clubs so there is something for all students.”

This year, the club will be led by the new president, Lora Brasfield, junior.

Throughout the year, GSA will continue its tradition of tie-dyeing club shirts, volunteering at Manatee Pride, and, as Hall put it, “a place for all students to come, have a good time, and be in a safe, comfortable environment.”

The next meeting will be Sept. 6 in Hall’s class, room 565, on Fridays.
