Georgetown University May Elect First Openly Homosexual Student Body President

Georgetown University’s student newspaper, The Hoya, reports that Georgetown may elect its first homosexual president to the Georgetown University Student Association (GUSA). Nate Tisa is one of five candidates vying for the position.

According to the article, GUSA senate speaker Tisa would be the second openly homosexual student body president at a major Jesuit university. Carlos Mechaca was elected president of the student association at the University of San Francisco in 2003.

“Having someone as the president of the student government to be openly gay sets Georgetown as an exceptional case where the vast majority of the student body is not just OK with seeing that person on campus, but also elect him to the top of the student office,” said Thomas Lloyd, founder of Catholic Association of Students for Equality.

GU Pride endorsed Tisa in the GUSA race.

“This is about more than just Georgetown. As the first openly gay student body president at Georgetown — at a major Jesuit university — we have the ability the change the way that the Catholic identity is interpreted,” said Tisa.
