Manheim Community Library invites teens and interested supporters to join us in kicking off our new Gender and Sexuality Alliance on Monday, July 22nd at 6 PM. Snacks will be provided. Registration is appreciated to help us plan but walk-ins are welcome!
GSA is a popular club among schools around the country which serves as a support system for LGBTQ+ teens, and is a platform for them to incite change in their communities. LGBTQ+ Allies are also encouraged to join and learn more about proper terminology and acceptance. The club will be a fun, safe space for teens to get to know each other and talk about social issues related to the LGBTQ+ community. Members will get to decide what they want the focus of the club to be and to organize projects based on the club’s goals. The kickoff for the Library’s GSA will be run by intern Eva Hain as part of the Library’s participation in the Public Library Association’s Inclusive Internship Initiative. So please stop by, bring a friend, and be ready to brainstorm!
