Genesee Community College
Imagine the thoughts and feelings of the many students who come from lands far away to see something so familiar when they raise their eyes and gaze at the ceiling in the cafeteria and spot the flag from their homeland represented.
Surely it must provide much needed calm as they attempt to acclimate to a new location with new friends and reassurance that they will eventually get over the “culture-shock” of being in a new country.
The Genesee Community College – Gay-Straight-Alliance, (GCC-GSA), a student organization charged with educating, supporting and empowering the GCC community regarding gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) issues, believes that GLBT members of the campus community have the same need for calm and reassurance while acclimating to a new environment.
Therefore, the GCC-GSA proposes that Genesee Community College include and raise the Rainbow flag, a symbol of diversity and acceptance, in the GCC cafeteria.
