The mission of Created Equal: Rising Together for Queer Liberation is to design and implement projects on a local, state and national level, which will address issues and provide solutions to problems facing LGBTQA people on the Ithaca College campus, the larger community, and the United States as a whole. Created Equal does a number of different types of projects, including In Your Face Projects, the Red Cross Blood Ban Project, and the Business Project, and has a News, Immediate Response and Education committee. The Dowel Display was one of Created Equal's biggest projects and it was initially done in 2002. It demonstrates Kinsey's one in ten statistic by visually representing how many students at Ithaca College are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.
The Association of Gay and Straight Student Athletes (AGSSA)
The purpose of the Association of Gay and Straight Student Athletes is to change prevailing attitudes and perceptions in regards to homosexuality, athletes, and athletics; to combat homophobia and heterosexism in sports and athletics. The AGSSA seeks to provide outreach for openly gay student athletes, support and encourage student athletes that do not feel comfortable or safe expressing their sexuality in athletic situations, and provide a safe space for all student athletes to discuss issues of sexuality in sport. The AGSSA will work to encourage a dialogue between athletes, coaches, and teams in order to promote open and welcoming environments. Find them on ICLink!
