ABiGaLe-Allies

ABiGaLe/Allies is a Gay-Straight Alliance dedicated to raising awareness about LGBTQ issues to the Holy Cross community. Hosting annual events such as Rainbow Alliance Week, ABiGaLe/Allies seeks to spread knowledge and understanding about the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning community at Holy Cross. Holding weekly meetings allows the group to become a close family where we discuss relevant issues, plan for upcoming events (speakers, socials, panels, group outings, etc), and spend time getting to know one another.

ABiGaLe/Allies promotes and facilitates education, discussion, and dialogue about both the culture and the issues faced by gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) students at Holy Cross; provides a necessary voice on campus, furthering acceptance and awareness of the LGBTQ community at Holy Cross; sustains an active and supportive community for the LGBTQ students at Holy Cross; and counters homophobic attitudes and behavior and thereby creates a safer environment for the LGBTQ community at Holy Cross.
