Recognizing the need for a student community, members of L’GASP: The LGBTQIA+ Caucus of ASHA collaborated to lay the groundwork for the LGBTQ+ CSDSA in early 2021.

Recruiting officers from across the country, the LGBTQ+ CSDSA became an officially registered nonprofit organization in May 2021, and had its first event in September of 2021. The organization continues to grow and welcome new members as it enters its second year of operations.
