Framingham High School GSA is a student Gender & sexuality Alliance at Framingham High School that is dedicated to creating safer schools in the Framingham Public School district for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Intersex and Asexual (LGBTQIA+) youth and their allies. There are four areas in which FHS GSA feels its mission lies:
*Educating the Framingham Public School Community (staff, faculty, and students) about homophobia, bullying and other issues and events that affect LGBTQIA+ youth to ensure a safer and more respectful learning environment for all students at the High School.
*Creating a safe and social area for LGBTQIA+ students and their allies to meet weekly to discuss current and relative LGBTQIA+ issues that are pertinent in their everyday lives.
*Creating a supportive network with organizations within the Framingham Community, other High School GSAs, and adult LGBTQIA+ organizations.
*Provide a scholarship for 1 or 2 seniors who have been active in issues concerning civil rights and safety for our LGBTQIA+ youth.
