Always Our Children Retreat: April 5 - 7, 2013
This weekend retreat is open to Gonzaga students who are part of the LGBTQA campus community. This retreat gives students an opportunity to ask questions, discuss issues, and listen to people's stories in a safe and open environment. This retreat is intended as a way to accept the gift of one's own sexuality and show that each individual is one of God's children.
Safe Space Training
Unlike more visible under-represented groups, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons cannot be readily identified. Likewise, there is no easy method of finding persons supportive of LGBT people. The Safe Space Program strives to provide a way for supportive persons within the University community to prominently identify themselves. The program advances Gonzaga University's goal of creating a campus community in which everyone is treated with respect and dignity. Everyone who completes Safe Space training and signs the Ally Pledge receives a Safe Space sign to display in their office, classroom, or residence hall room. Every time you see the Safe Space sign, you know allies are close by.
