Coalition for Gender and Sexuality Awareness

The Coalition for Gender and Sexuality Awareness is a student-run, student funded organization at Whitman College that is committed to ending homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, and heterosexism through education, activism, and social events. We are a diverse and dynamic group of individuals who stand united against all oppression, and we also have lots of fun in the process.

The Coalition has a long history of funding speakers, programming discussions, and putting on some of the most popular dances of the year. Everyone is welcome to join regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity because we stand as a coalition united for similar purposes. Please join us if you are lesbian, gay, straight, bisexual, transgender, allied, queer, questioning, asexual, pansexual, polyamorous, etc., etc., etc.! All are welcome.
