President: Tara LaPeligrosa Lee

What got you interested/started in the gothic scene/lifestyle?
My father was a funeral director and my mother was an English major before becoming a teacher. I kind of didn’t have a choice in the matter.

Why did you join GPS?
The first time I joined GPS, I was asked to join. I accepted because I believed in the organization and the goals they were trying to accomplish for the community. I had to step away for a bit to deal with some personal stuff, but now I’m back and ready to roll up the sleeves again for GPS!

What would you like to see in the community?
I would like see more unity. Right now, our community is extremely fragmented, and it doesn’t have to be. I know everyone has their difference of opinion, but it would be nice if we could all just get along. There’s strength in numbers

What got you into the gothic scene/lifestyle?
I’ve always been uniquely different growing up, attracted to the darker, alternative, unusual aesthetics and lifestyle. I love having the freedom to be myself and being able to share my interest with others

Why did you join GPS?
I have attended some GPS events, both volunteering and performing in the past, but I was trying to find my place in the community where I could make an impact. When I heard there where openings, I had to apply.

What would you like to see in the community?
I think that more representation for alternative scenes in general is a great thing. For helping others find their voice, to help people find a place they feel they can belong, for making new connections. Seeing the scene strengthen because members have more reasons to make the community a bigger part of their lives
