Who we are and What we are doing -

The Washington County Gay Straight Alliance has facilitated a peer group for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Questioning, Queer, Asexual, and Allied (LGBTQA) youth, ages 21 and under, and provided resources since November, 2005. Kathy Cameron, Jennifer Newman, and Mary Jo Podgurski co-founded the community Gay Straight Alliance along with two high school students. Mark Swift joined the group as a facilitator/advisor in 2010. On August 29, 2012, we took the next step by forming a Nonprofit Corporation so that we may expand programming and services. Our long- term goal is to establish a welcoming Community Center in Washington. We filed with the IRS for tax-exempt status on March 7, 2013. In the meantime, we have a FHO (Funds Held for Others) Account with the Persad Center of Pittsburgh to enable us to accept donations.
