Historical Note

The Alliance of Queer and Ally Students originated in 1970 as the Michigan State University Gay Liberation Movement, a registered student organization. Its objective was to provide lesbian and gay students with representation in student government, educate the public on issues of sexual orientation, and to counter discrimination and harassment.

In 1977, the name of the group changed to the MSU Gay Liberation Council. Subsequently, it was renamed the MSU Lesbian/Gay Council, then the Alliance of Lesbian-Bi-Gay Students (ALBGS). In 2005, the student organization was renamed the Alliance of Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, Transgendered and Straight Ally Students. In 2010, the name changed to Alliance of Queer and Ally Students.
