Gettysburg College’s gay-straight alliance will host Allies Week Feb. 27-March 3. "ALLies has worked hard since the end of the fall semester to put this week together,” said Adrienne Ellis ’14, ALLies vice president. “We hope that it helps bring awareness to LGBTQA issues on campus, as well as provide beneficial and fun events to all students and faculty."
