Transcript National Coming Out Day GLOBAL's on-campus event for National Coming Out Day at UH's Lynn Eusan Park featured public speakers and introduced many students to the organization. Photo by Heather Nicholson GLOBAL "Gayla" The first ever Coming Out Day dance, held at a popular downtown club, was a huge success for both GLOBAL and UH, as well as the start of a new yearly tradition. Photo by Kena Alvarado rang doors for everiyj Of S" en' GLOBAL rang The Gay, Lesbian, or Bisexual Alliance, GLOBAL, served as the social, political, and support organization for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community and its supporters at the University of Houston. In the fall semester of 2002, GLOBAL was home to over forty members. Essentially, GLOBAL has been in existence for more than twenty years, even though the name has changed on a few occasions. GLOBAL provided support, answered questions, discussed problems, and hosted meet and greet events for many attendees. GLOBAL also provided forums for discussion about possible "actions on issues" related to the gay community on campus and in the Houston area. "I want to stress that GLOBAL invites people to come to meetings and events that might have some questions, or maybe doesn't understand where the GLOBAL community is coming from. I think that there are many people out there that think that our organization is strictly for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community, and this is NOT TRUE at all. We encourage all types of people to just come and check us out," stated sophomore economics ma- tllie iiau Lesbian Or iDisexiial All iance jor Amanda Gonzales, who is GLOBAL's vice president. On October 11, "National Coming Out Day," GLOBAL held a rally at Lynn Eusan Park which was attended by GLOBAL members, friends, family, and many of the group's supporters. That day, three new members "came out of the closet," which was exciting for the group. There were many motivational and community based speakers in attendance at that all day event. After the rally, GLOBAL hosted a "Gayla" dance at a downtown nightclub, where attendees danced the night away with smiles on their faces. "In my opinion, the most important part of the organization is the support team that GLOBAL provides. When someone'comes out', they usually experience a sense of isolationism. We are here to give them comfort and support, and let these individuals know that there are other people dealing with the same issues," stated GLOBAL's President, senior- biology major Leslie Hamilton. GLOBAL hosted multiple fund raising event s, i n- cluding bake sales, car washes, and barbecues. With the funds, GLOBAL made donations to the Houston Gay and Lesbian Community Center. - Dixie Ann Dalton Dance with me Far from only a political outlet or emotional support group, GLOBAL provided members with social activites that included potluck dinners, fund-raising car-washes, and get-togethers like the one shown here.
