I love finding ways to make people feel welcome, included, or accepted. When I was still in high school, gay, lesbian, and bisexual individuals were not accepted there, nor did they feel that way. I was continually seeing how they were mistreated everyday for nothing more than feelings they could hardly control. I started a group on campus called The Gay Straight Alliance. The purpose of this group was not to promote their choices in any way, but to promote tolerance. This group included gay, lesbian, bisexual, and straight individuals who shared the same ideas on tolerance in the world. Not only did “GSA” provide an environment where gay, lesbian, and bisexual individuals could feel accepted, but it also brought a new concept into the eyes of our peers. It made the bullies of our school realize that we are all people. We go through the same hardships, the same joys, and the same tears. It suddenly did not matter who was gay or straight, but mattered simply that we share space in this world and must accept each other.
