SBVC Sexuality and Gender Acceptance (S.A.G.A.) Club is bringing forth the voices of LGBTQ+ students. Such a presence has been absent on campus for many years. As one of the club advisors, Ernest Guillen, said, “It’s been many years since a club of this kind has been active at SBVC and as we return from the pandemic environment it’s important we recognize and meet the unique needs of our LGBTQ+ students.” S.A.G.A. Club President Nicole Perez echoes Guillen by stating that it’s important for the LGBTQ+ campus community to have a safe space to express themselves without judgement and discuss LGBTQ+ issues that affect the community inside and outside of campus.
S.A.G.A. is driving full speed ahead by hosting a variety of events for the campus community, including bringing back the Annual Drag Show in October, a staple in the Fall semester pre-pandemic. Hosted by Texan TikTok sensation, AJ Rivas, the show featured local performers ShuLinda, King Phantom, Ginger Presley and Shear Love Montayé.
