Manitou Springs GSTA

(Gay Straight Trans Alliance) We celebrate everyone here!

Manitou, YOU MATTER! #MustangStrong!!!

Every Wednesday & Friday at lunch in Room 11!

Bring your lunch. Come alone. Bring your friends. All are welcome to GSTA.

We are a gathering of LGBTQ+ students, teachers, and allies!

What to expect: a safe space to eat, talk, check in and share if you wish, ask questions, learn, advocate, connect, and celebrate one another!

Our Accomplishments:

In the 2018-2019 school year, we worked to insure gender neutral bathrooms for students and gender neutral graduation gowns! We continued our tradition of attending Urban Peak's Night Out to End Youth Homelessness, and by partnering with NHS, we raised $1600 to donate to Urban Peak! We also participated in GLSEN's Day of Silence in April. Do you have ideas for 2019-2020? Come join us!

Check out our GENDER NEUTRAL GOWNS!!!!
