The Whitehall High School Gay-Straight Alliance will present a free movie night to the public at the White Lake Playhouse on Saturday November 19, featuring a screening of the 2018 film Love, Simon.

The story follows Simon Spier, a teenager whose circumstances put him in awkward positions and disrupt his friendships as he faces the daunting process of coming out. When Simon starts emailing an anonymous person online who shares some of his struggles, he is then forced to overcome a number of obstacles that help him grow as a person and ultimately find himself.

The Gay-Straight Alliance seeks to provide a safe space for all students and to generate support for the LGBTQ+ community within Whitehall schools and through local events. Although they are made up of only seven dedicated members at present, their hopes are to grow the AGK significantly this year before the majority of seniors graduate. Whitehall GSA meetings are relaxed with lots of discussion, activity planning and Kahoots games, and they meet every Thursday morning.

For more information or to ask questions, contact Ariana Treat by email at [email protected] On this special evening, baked goods will be sold at the door before the film begins, and the GSA will speak briefly after the film about its mission and plans, as well as key takeaways from the film. The Whitehall GSA hopes to make this free community movie night an annual event to raise awareness and foster understanding and kindness towards people of all identities and backgrounds.
