meeting this thursday the 22nd in room 245 after school.

movie: Flawless

topics of discussion:
-George Bush, if I can gather enough information in time.
-harassment in our school.
-ways to spread awareness.
-poster making! bring all your old 17 magazines, I'll supply bristol board. bring your art supplies.

ok, so I'm thinking we'll discuss awhile, and make posters while watching half the movie. the next half we'll save for next week.
please, if you can, make more people come.
tell them we have free food. who knows, we might? (*cough*)

pfft. I'm a sucky moderator, I can't add to the gsa friends list. weeeirdnesss.

I don't know if there can be a meeting next week, I might have to babysit. I'm at a concert on the 23rd (tues).
I get so discouraged running this thing.

So, movie night, anyone?
I'll rent something good (not necessarily gay) any suggestions welcome. maybe we can have a wednesday meeting. I'll let you all know.
Maybe Mr Harvey will lend his brains to us and give us ideas.
time for dinner
<3 xoxo

I secum to Renee's awesome and fearful will.

Hello, my name's Amanda, and I've been straight for almost eighteen years. *applause* I want to be the alliance's resident 'straight-as-a-ruler' member. *makes self badge*

I think posters are a good idea, Renee, so give me a date and I'll bring lots of art supplies too. We should make a Gandalf poster and be like "Wizards aren't afraid to be gay". Hum. Yeah. We'll rangle up some newbies yet.

Meeting thursday in room 245.
I'll see if I can bring a movie.

we should make posters. but, I need to find pictures...so I'm thinking I'll buy bristol board, print of a bunch of pictures, and we'll make posters with markers or paint.
we can cut each sheet in half.

anyhoo. see you there.
next week w'll have our very first lunch time meeting.
maybe. just to see if it encourages anyone to show up.

why is life so hjkhjagfhjsgfgjhgfhdsgghGHGHJGJM?!!

yah. I actually had an OK day.
why doesn't anyone join this, at least my friends could, honestly now. write something. anything vaguely related would be nice. I will be back to harass you.

yeah, it's been awhile. I apologise.
Meeting thursday, room 250. Bring your christmas cheer (or something).
We'll be watching a movie, eating candy, playing music & maybe even games. (strip)twister? XD j/k

I'm sorry the meetings are so disorganized so far.
My life is fuct up, and so, the GSA is too.

I only have one thing I want to discuss with you all. Online or off.
Those of you reading this, are probably one of my friends, and so you've seen the shyte written on the lockers/heater.
and you've probably seen me having a mental breakdown or something...

It's gotten to the point where Banting is, lets face it, not a safe environment. Some of us, and probably many others I've just not met, are facing daily abuse.
I feel as though it's getting progressively worse. and I feel useless, because I can't do anything about it.
I don't know who these people are.
They're yelling down the halls, street, out of windows and cars... Writing on our lockers, and starting fights.(or trying to)

All I can do is ask that you report any incidents, even if you don't know who said it to you. Especially report it if you do. Ask for ms Buckler, and if you get someone else, ask them to make sure she knows.
If none of the VPs are in, write them a note, and go back later. Make a freakin appointment if you must.

We're going to start whining, people. I know it's sooo much to ask, but we want to get our education in a place we at least don't feel hunted in.
The admin may feel that because we don't know these kids, they can't do anything... but that's just not cutting it any more.

They're the professionals, they can brainstorm solutions.
I'm just trying to graduate.
anyways. we'll talk.

see you all tomorrow (groan)

9:18 pm - :(

well, todays meeting was a total bust. NOBODY came.
Usually it's just my friends and I know they can't always make it, I don't blame them.
But it sucks that no other students are taking an interest. They don't care, aren't interested, or are too chicken.
I stayed till 2:45 and didn't feel like sitting around any longer, so Britt and I went home.

People must have the wrong idea. It's not alcoholics anonymous... "hello, My name's Renée, and I'm a homosexual!"

we just hang out. watch movies. think up fun stuff to do.
(gay karaoke? crossdressing day? hello, anyone?)
anyways... I'll keep running announcements and showing up on thursdays. I'll talk to a VP about crossdress day. I'll plan a trip somewhere, eventually.
I'll make new posters, new info flyers, and do something for human rights day.

At least Cherry, Jenny, and sometimes Jo or Amanda will come to meetings. Plus Britt, and now Jasmine.
I wish some boys would come. or even some girls I haven't met. there are tons of gay kids who just don't bother to show up. (I'd settle for just one appearance, really :P)
sigh. it's just a little discouraging.
It's like...the kids are getting MORE ignorant, instead of more open minded. How do we effect social change in such a horrible, prejudiced atmosphere?

just keep trying I guess.
People don't realize how much bigotry we still face. You learn (I have trouble) to shrug it off, I don't know who these people are. If I cried every time I got DYKE yelled at me, I'd suffocate. But I suck at dealing with it, so I just get resentful and mean and bitter.
Hate me because I'm a bitch, not because I'm gay. honestly now.

I guess I just wish I felt there was more support for us. I don't KNOW you care unless you say something.
The worst part is, people probably think we don't need any support. We live in an "enlightened time", after all. We have "rights". what does it matter if nobody respects them?

anyhoo. thats enough from me.
any graduated BMHS students are welcome to join, btw (psst...melanie.) just if they wanna tell us some good ideas.

btw, Allison is our benefactor of sorts! she gave me this lj code. She is a famous, Hawt pornstar. bowdown :D~ hehehe

see you all at school tomorrow. Friday...it's almost over...

current mood: disappointed

Here's the first entry. wow.
tomorrow there's a meeting in room 245, as anyone who may read this already knows. I've got 2 movies... I don't know if we'll actually watch either, I was hoping we could talk and come up with some ideas.
There might be 1 or 2 new people coming to check it out, but I really don't know.
I just hear things :P

I'm thinking we can discuss posters, what we might do as a group (trips, a little thing on human rights day, schoolwide crossdressing day..)
I still have that huge map we made last year, with info on laws concerning homosexuals in various countries. colour coded and everything! hah.

anyhoo, I have to get going. I'm going to fail my 2nd period if I don't start doing some actual work.
see you tomorrow night kiddies
