The Gay-Straight Alliance representatives changed the club’s  name to Gender Sexuality Awareness during their first meeting this year.

Since the terms gay and straight only encompass two types of people, club leaders decided to broaden the name to incorporate all genders, sexes, and sexual preferences, co-president Liza Woythaler ’14  said.  The three co-presidents Levi Craske-Curtin ’14, Daniel Palumbo ’14 and Woythaler came up with the idea.

“I think the name change will allow people to recognize our club’s inclusiveness, as we accept and have accepted anyone who wants to join,” Woythaler said.
