While the main A&M campus in College Station is digging out from its perennial “most homophobic” label by the Princeton Review, TAMUCT’s GSA is forging ahead.
On April 5, the group hosts Fiona Dawson on campus. Dawson is producer and the host of TransMilitary, a series contrasting the lives of U.S. and British transgender service members. For the 2012 Democratic and Republican conventions, she hosted for HereTV. She began her career in Houston and has served as Grand Marshal of the Houston Pride parade.
Gay Straight Alliance–Warriors meets the second Wednesday of the month at 4:30 p.m. in Founder’s Hall, Room 203.
The group began meeting in the spring of 2012 by a group “passionate about the idea of equality and acceptance for all persons — regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity” and about promoting an inclusive community.
