Georgetown University Elects First Homosexual Student Association President

Georgetown University’s student body has elected its first openly homosexual president of the Student Association. As reported last week, Nate Tisa was running as a presidential candidate with the hopes of altering the school's Catholic identity.

“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,” Tisa said at the time.

Tisa and his running mate, Adam Ramadan, were elected Thursday, Feb. 21 finishing just 92 votes ahead in the final runoff vote. Their platform advocated for expanded free-speech zones, combating sexual assault on campus,and establishing gender-neutral housing. They received endorsements from the campus’ pro-abortion group, H*yas for Choice, and the campus’ pro-homosexual group, GU Pride.

“Students have shown that they know we care about diversity, care about free speech and sexual assault,” said Tisa. “As the first gay president at this university… I am going to tell them,this is the 21st century and they have absolutely no reason to deny the fact there are gay students here who deserve representation and deserve a voice in student government.”

Tisa and Ramadan will be sworn in to their new roles on March 16.
