The Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) will have a meeting on Oct. 4. The group will finish up designing locker signs and begin putting them up. Anyone who still wants to join will still be able to get a locker sign.

Last week, the GSA had a Homecoming booth. They sold baked goods and raised $40, about as much as they have in the past.

“We never expect to make much money off of the booth,” said sponsor Jeremy Horner. “We just have fun.”

For next year, the GSA hopes to change the purpose of their Homecoming booth. Instead of aiming to raise money, the group wants to distribute handouts and buttons to raise awareness for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and questioning community cause.

“I feel like we were selling the same things as other people,” said president and senior Morgan Davis. “Instead of selling stuff, actually bringing awareness to the issues at hand (is our goal). It is fun to sell everything, but it’s more important to get the information that we are fighting for out there.”
