The Gay-Straight Alliance explored Love, Lust, and Lyrics last Tuesday at Savannah State University’s recreational ballroom. The organization, ran by Savannah State students, embodied their theme of love, lust, and lyrics with performances of dance, music, and poetry. Chocolate refreshments, red tables decorated with candles, condoms, and balloons, accompanied by soft sultry music helped get everyone prompted for the upcoming acts.
“The décor was amazing” Alisha Brown, an SSU junior said “The dim lighting, the chocolate, and the candles did good in representing what it was all about”
Vice President, Jamie Allen, and Treasure, Tisheena Howard, of the Gay-Straight Alliance hosted the event. They introduced acts like Ivy League ft. Higher
Living who performed an original song, duet singers, Tanisha Johnson and Celia Millage, who sung a cappella version of Jazmine Sullivan’s “In Love with Another Man”, dancer, Lorenzo Daniels, and poet, Phoenix. They voiced their dealings with love, hurt, sexuality, and relationships with Christ. Others were allowed to express themselves in an open mic held to conclude the night.
“I loved the poetry,” said senior student, Hannah Davis “it was my favorite part”
This event was one of many the Gay-Straight Alliance organization has been putting together since 2011. The organization is very creative in their themes, and create fun environments where everyone feels free to be themselves.
