Missouri GSA Network to Host Fall Summits

This fall, the Missouri GSA Network (missourigsanetwork.org) will be hosting six GSA summit events, five regional high school summits and one state-wide collegiate summit. Empowerment of LGBT, queer and ally student leaders in Missouri is the goal. Students, faculty, staff and community supporters will be in attendance.
To remind our readers, GSA stands for gay-straight alliance. Gay-straight alliances are student-led groups that are formed in middle schools, high schools and colleges to provide safe places for students to meet and support one another, talk about sexual orientation and gender identity/expression issues and work to end homophobia and transphobia through education and activism.
The GSA summit in the Kansas City area is set for Sep. 13 at the UMKC Student Union, Room 401, University of Missouri-Kansas City, Volker Campus, 5100 Cherry St., Kansas City, Mo. It and all other regional high school summits run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with lunch provided.

The state-wide collegiate summit will be Sep. 27 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the MU Student Center, University of Missouri campus, 911 E. Rollins St., Columbia, Mo.

Brad has been writing for Camp since 2004. His beat is mostly local features and general LGBT news. Common topics have included youth, faith and community. Although he holds an M.A. in journalism, he primarily considers himself to be a chemist, having studied and worked in biochemistry, quantitative analysis, quality assurance and the production of educational science texts. He's laconic, unintentionally enigmatic and often facetious. He enjoys irony, as well as things – but not animals, apparently – that are simultaneously beautiful and utilitarian. He and his cat, Charlie Parker, reside in downtown Kansas City, Mo. If you have a story idea for Brad, send him a note at bosborn@campkc.com.
