Gay People's Alliance
The Gay People's Alliance was a bi-college group founded in 1975. The GPA had a space in a basement at Haverford, and for the first few years was made up of primarily gay Haverfordians. In about 1977, the composition shifted radically to primarily lesbian and bisexual Mawrtyrs, and stayed that way until the bi-college group split into two single-college groups.
Listen to Denise Kulp '80 discuss the gender balance of the GPA and her experience leading the group in its early years here.
Gay People's Alliance dances were famous outside of the bi-college network. Students regularly attended from Swarthmore, Penn, and other area schools. According to several alumnae/i, they were even featured in a famous college review book at the time, described as the best parties at Bryn Mawr College.
