  Alliance, Susky’s LGBT club, hosted Bring a Friend Day on Wednesday, January 25.

  The goal is to promote tolerance and diversity in the club, as well as in the hallways, cafeteria, and classrooms as well.

Sophomore Alex Fabie and junior Nell Puglise measure out materials for their friendship bracelets.

  Supervised by English teacher Erica Littleton, the club meets every Wednesday to do activities and catch up with one another.
  “Alliance to me just means creating that environment that we want at the school where everyone knows that he or she is important and has a place at the school. And where each person knows that there is a safe place to go and be accepted,” said Littleton

  On Wednesday, the club members made friendship bracelets, talked about their days, and listened to music.

  The energy in the room was very positive, and it was a safe space for all students.

  From Bring a Friend Day, students can learn respect for all people and educate themselves about what LGBT is all about.

  Founding member junior Nell Pugliese wants people to practice acceptance and be kind to all people.

   “It is literally an Alliance between everybody who identifies as LGBT in the school and their friends as a way to unite and show support for each other,” said Pugliese.

  In the eyes of the members, Susky is already a pretty accepting place, but Bring a Friend day can help get the word out even more to those who still do not understand.

  “There’s not a lot of ignorance, it’s not overwhelming in this school, but there are a couple people…,” said junior Virginia Shelley.

  Overall, Bring a Friend Day is a way to make Susky a friendlier place where all students have a happy and safe learning environment.

    I am so happy to see this. You should try to get the whole student body involved in at least a couple activities a school year… Also I hate it being called a safe place, the whole school should be a safe place as well as teaching them to stand up for themselves.
