Gender and Sexual Diversity- Safe And Friendly Environment (GSD-SAFE), in accordance with SMU’s dedication to diversity and social justice, will actively build community among LGBTQ persons and their straight allies.

The alliance works to create an awareness of and respect for sexual and gender diversity. Because of the prevalence of heterosexism and homophobic attitudes, GSD-SAFE recognizes the difficulty that sexually diverse students may have in realizing, and celebrating all aspects of their personalities and cultures.

By providing educational programs to the Saint Mary’s University campus, GSD-SAFE will combat myths, prejudices, and fears about LGBTQ persons and their cultures in order to dispel them. We will sponsor lectures, panels, residence hall programs, discussions, films, showcases, literature, and entertainment events concerning sexual diversity.
