The mission of the Gay Straight Alliance at Harker's Upper School is three-fold. First, it provides a safe environment where students and adults can discuss and educate themselves about issues related to gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgendered youth. All will have the opportunity to engage these issues openly and honestly with the guidance of the adult advisors of the organization. Secondly, members will help design programs that will educate the greater Harker community about gay issues and homophobia. Finally, the alliance will serve as the liaison when issues concerning gay youth arise.
