Happy #PrideMonth! In honor of this month, we are featuring @ju_gsa. The leadership team of Jacksonville University's Gender Sexuality Alliance club successfully relaunched this important club on-campus in November 2020 and has already made a huge impact. The team is made up of Caitlin Morales, Alana Lecointe, Bradley Cordero, and Ashtan Goodwin. Check out these quotes on why they took on a leadership role within the club. --- “I wanted to be a part of the GSA because representation matters. It's hard going through life thinking you're alone. With this organization, I want to help people see that they have a whole community, built on love, who wants to support and help them” -Alana Lecointe ---- “I wanted to start up this organization again because I feel it's imperative to create a safe space for LGBTQ+ students. LGBTQ+ voices deserve to be heard, protected, respected, and loved in a world that's filled with so much hate. I'm so glad to be President of this organization and team!” -Caitlin Morales --- “I knew I was gay since I was in the first grade. My life is an uphill battle, constantly having to prove myself to the world around me, my friends, my family, and my parents. I am beyond grateful for the strong LGBT+ people who have come before me, who fought for my right to be who I am. I joined the GSA to give hope to and unify our community, as students at Jacksonville University. It’s time to share the love. Enliven our community. Show the pride and celebrate who we are.” -Bradley Cordero --- "In the words of George Takei, 'We should indeed keep calm in the face of difference and live our lives in a state of inclusion and wonder at the diversity of humanity.' " -Ashtan Goodwin.
