The LGBTQ+ Support Fund
The Queer Straight Alliance was originally started in 1978 and as been dedicated to increasing diversity and inclusion throughout MSU and the local community. We would like to further our mission through a fund to help LGBT+ students in need. QSA has been working on outreach to provide this support for the community. This fund would create a way to support those in need as this is a difficult transition period in the lives of many. Being LGBTQ+, especially trans identities, creates a unique set of challenges that most do not face. With the creation of this fund, QSA members will have an accessible way to meet their basic needs as well as any unique expenses that stem from their identity. Many do not have the means to get things such as gender affirming clothing, gender-specific hygiene products, or even something as simple as a haircut. The creation of this fund would give these students the ability to acquire these simple things that make a huge difference.
