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.
Lambda Alliance strives to:
Lambda Alliance is an influential voice in the university community whose members take an active approch in protecting the rights of LGBTQ folks. Working with administration, faculty, and other student organizations, we ensure that the concerns of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and asexual (LGBTQA) students are represented. Lambda has also participated in state and national events, such as the Atlanta Pride march, the Atlanta AIDSWalk, and the Millennium March on Washington.
Lambda Alliance sponsors a wide variety of programs throughout the year to educate the university community about LGBTQA issues. These include Diversity Awareness Week at Georgia and our annual National Coming Out Day activities. In addition, members are well-informed on current legislation and other pertinent issues concerning LGBTQA. One of our most popular services is the Speakers' Bureau, a panel discussion group which is available to any university or Athens organization or class. Residence halls, sororities, and English and sociology classes are some recent examples of groups that have utilized Speakers' Bureau.
Lambda Alliance offers a safe, inclusive enviroment inclusive of gender, gender identity or expression, race, ethinic group, religion, disability status, and nationality/citizenship. In addition, we provide support for students in all stages of the coming out process. Aside from our weekly meetings, we sponsor several community events shows social events each semester, including dances, movie nights, and parties. Lambda also provides information to its members about services available to them at UGA and in Athens.
