Queer Straight Alliance

Queer Straight Alliance Purple logo 250MISSION STATEMENT & PURPOSE

The Queer Straight Alliance was founded in 2014 in response to an acute need for a safe space on campus where LGBTQ+ students could be themselves. Through QSA, we give back to our LGBTQ+ community by volunteering at local non-profits and by showing support and solidarity to our fellow peers.

ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION

QSA provides a fun, safe environment for students to talk about their lives and the challenges they face as members of and advocates for Jeff State’s growing LGBTQ+ community. The organization also provides students with knowledge about affirming resources in the Birmingham area and with opportunities to volunteer and/or participate in campus events and local non-profit organizations, like the Magic City Acceptance Center.

MEETING INFORMATION

Our weekly meetings, which are designed to be a safe place where LGBTQ+ students and advocates can be themselves, are held on Wednesdays from 2:30-4:00 pm in GSB 217 on the Shelby-Hoover Campus. At these meetings, we respect everyone’s pronouns and identities while still managing to have fun!
