Lambda Alliance, first established in 1992 as the Athens Gay and Lesbian Association, came into being in order to meet the needs of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, asexual (LGBTQA), and allied students, faculty, and staff. We are now an officially recognized student organization at the University of Georgia, and our mission is to strengthen the LGBTQA community here on campus and in the larger Athens community.
We strive to:
- Create a safe, secure, and supportive environment for the LGBTQA community by increasing social awareness of LGBTQA presence and concerns
- Promote acts of public service
- Monitor political issues relevant to the LGBTQA community and strive to create political change to serve the LGBTQA community
- Provide outlets for social interaction among Lambda Alliance members and the LGBTQA community
