Rose-Hulman’s official Gay-Straight Alliance
organization. We plan events to raise awareness about and
promote tolerance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender people and
issues. We also provide a safe place for people to
be who they are, when they otherwise might feel obligated to hide
it. While our primary focus is on issues of sexual
orientation, this belief extends to minority groups of all kinds.
Our goal is to send a message:
it is OK to be who you are. Statistics have shown that it is
likely one out of every ten people is gay, but the many of these are
deep in the closet because they fear what the people around them will
think about it. Unity wants to change this, but we need your
help to do it.
Unity is not an exclusive club
of gay and lesbian members! The straight allies of GBLT
people are critical for our mission to be a success. Many gay
people rely on the support that they receive from their straight
friends and family to get through the often difficult process of coming
out and dealing with the emotions involved with being gay.
