QuASA hosted Coming Out Month featuring their Coming Out BBQ and giant wall where students could write in what they are coming out as. They also had a discussion of LGBT public displays of affection on campus with students and DPS officers. Moreover, QuASA gave away 100 STR8 Against H8 t-shirts for supportive allies, and also published the OUTLIST in the center spread of the Daily Trojan for National Coming Out Day – be an awesome queer! This is both Angela & Michael’s first year in Program Board. In addition to Program Board, Angela is involved with Youth Exploring Passion, a mentoring organization for pregnant and parenting teens in South LA. Michael is also part of the Roski Student Connection and Food Not Bombs.
