With February just around the corner, SLA is proud to be hosting its second LGBT Valentine’s Day Dance. The idea came to me last year when observing that typically SLA has many dances, but that gay people, like myself, may not feel comfortable dancing with fellow gay people. With Valentine’s day coming up, I thought it might be nice to have a dance for people in not only our GSA (gay/ straight alliance) but also GSA’s across the city. While the dance wasn’t attended by as many people as we originally hoped, a fun time was had by all. This year, we are expanding our publicity by handing out flyers at the Mazzoni Center and reaching out to our friends at other schools via social media.
Now before anyone asks, allow me to clarify something: Yes, straight people/ couples can come. It is our hope, at least in terms of ratio, that more people in the LGBT community shall be able to attend. However, straight people and couples are more than welcome to come in a way to show support to the community. Additionally it is something that SLAers can be proud of as I can’t think of any other school in the city that has a yearly tradition of hosting an LGBT- specific- dance.
It will start at 7pm and go on till 10, make sure to bring a High school I.D and music will be performed by our own talented D.J Phazze. All of your friends at the GSA are encouraging those who can to come, and to ask any who you know that might like to come, perhaps a gay friend or something of the like. In any case take pride in our local community and come to our LGBT dance!
