GSTA Hosts Showing of “Rocky Horror Picture Show”

Aubrey Hall, Reporter

Supporters of Manitou Springs High School’s GSTA (Gay Straight Transgender Alliance) and Rocky Horror fans alike gathered at the Venue 515 last Saturday, where the club hosted a free showing of the cult classic, Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Rocky Horror is a movie for people who are different,” said Maya Covington (11), head of Manitou’s GSTA club, “and I just figured that that made it the perfect movie to show today.”

The audience members varied in range of Rocky Horror expertise, from knowing the words and choreography to every song, to having never seen that movie before. Covington says that next year, she’s thinking of showing The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

This is the GSTA’s fourth year of existence at Manitou, and was established as an organization to support and foster positive interaction among students of all sexual orientations as well as educate the community on LGBTQ issues. They meet most Tuesdays and Fridays during lunch in Mr. Roberson’s room.
