The PFSA aims to create a safe and inclusive campus climate and advocate for justice, safety, wellbeing, and equity for all. The PFSA is committed to promoting education, awareness, and advocacy for/of the LGBT+ community within the Cal Poly and San Luis Obispo community. The PFSA recognizes the critical value of diverse perspectives, lives, and identities in enriching the university and working towards social justice.

Our Values

  • The PFSA aims to dismantle power differentials within the LGBT+ community itself; the PFSA intends to lift up the voices of individuals all marginalized sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions, including, but not limited to, bisexual, transgender, gender nonconforming, gender nonbinary, pansexual, and asexual peoples.

  • The PFSA welcomes allies and individuals at any place on the spectrum of being “out.” The PFSA recognizes the complexities of being “out,” does not require that individuals be “out” in any capacity, and welcomes all individuals who are questioning.
