Manhattan High School’s Gay-Straight Alliance sponsored a free movie night for MHS Students last Wednesday.  The event was free for students but GSA accepted donations of new socks for the FIT closet.

The idea of a movie night came about after a conversation of how GSA could be more involved with MHS.

“We wanted to do an activity with the school,” Krystina Tull, GSA vice president said. “We were throwing around ideas and someone suggested a movie night.”

GSA played the 2018 movie “Love Simon,” which is a love story about 17-year-old Simon Spier, a closeted guy who hasn’t told his family or friends that he’s gay, and he doesn’t know the identity of the anonymous classmate that he’s fallen for online.

The movie is a good example of representation for the LGBTQ community, which is what GSA supports.

“I’m not really sure how the movie ‘Love Simon’ was chosen but we wanted a movie that had something to do with GSA and the LGBTQ community,” Tull said.
