Capuchino hs saga

SAGA’s (Sexuality and Gender Alliance) mission is to build a visible community of LGBTQ students and their allies and to educate and advocate on issues of sexuality, gender, and ally-ship in order to create a safe environment for all students.

Drag allows us to express ourselves outside of dominant cultural norms, fearlessly, whether it's your gender expression or sexuality or way of being. It creates room for alternative stories, gender/sexuality diversity, and Queer visibility, and a way to show support to make our schools more safe and affirming for LGBTQ students. We hope you join in with the spirit of the show and find that inner bit of Drag in you!
