He hates me

I am going to school at a community college. I love being at school. I really enjoy seeing my life going in the dirrection of hopefully getting a career soon. I also enjoy other things that comes from school.
I am currently involved in a student group. It's a GSA. For those who don't know that's a gay/straight/allance. I am the oldest member (joys of being in school for so long without any degree yet) and I am the only straight. Everyone seems to love me except one guy. Keep in mind we are a small group so if one person hates you it's a big thing if you look at it at a mathmatical view.
We met before I started going to the meetings. He at first seemed happy I was planning on going. Lately he has been nothing but moody lately. We were friends on Facebook. He posted a picture on facebook that talked about nice things that came from our state. One thing listed was a certian entertianer. I pointed out the entertianer wasn't born here but another state. He got livid. He demanded proof. Come on. The guy is huge in the entertianment world. Don't you think it would be easy to figure out where he was born? Get real!
The other day the president of the group and I were volunteering at a campus event. She is one of those really polite, cheerful, love everyone on a personal level person. Everyone just about loves her at least on a personal level. I like her on a friendship level (I want her to get to know me and hopefully we can be friends). The guy was there for the event. That night it was his birthday. He walked into the room where the event was to be and the president and him spoke. I was sure she was wishing him a good birthday. He walked by me and as much as I could walked away from what I was doing and said hi. He at one point chewed me out for not knowing the bus system. Well excuse me. I haven't been in the area too long and I grew up in an area where we had no city bus. I am also bad with maps. Give me a break.
A few other things happened between him and I and I am getting sick of it. Ever since the whole entertianer thing he has been nothing but bitchy at me. Keep in mind everyone else in the group likes me. I am sure they appreate a straight ally. They also seem to like me on a personal level. On my side I love them very much on a personal level to friendship level. I think the world of these guys.
We were to have a party at his place and things were going well that night (this was before his birthday) and things were fine with him and I. I talked to him a bit but mostly to everyone else. Everyone was happy and enjoying themselves. I was having a blast.
So? I have to see him at each meeting. He is the vice president of the club. I am not sure if he is saying anything to the rest of the group. I think he is friends with the president and I want to be her friend too. I want to keep hanging around these people but with him being like this I am sure would cause issues somewhere.
There is another party at his place this coming week. I am sure he and I will get along as there will be others at the party so we don't really have to focus on each other. There is also that fear of looking bad in front of others that would make him think over being mean to me.
I really love these guys. I would do a lot for them within reason. You hear of people saying "throw me under a bus"? Yeah I would never throw any one of them (even that guy) under a bus. I would be the idiot running into the street and dragging them from harm's way. Everyone else I would stay and talk them down but that guy... yeah. I would just see he is safe and walk away. I am talking metaphoricly of course.
My guess as to what his issue is he was picked on for being gay. I think also he has self esteam issues for some reason. For some reason I am his target.
I am trying to avoid him when we are not to be around each other for the club. We might see each other at school but I won't go outside being nice. I will be polite but I won't go out of my way to go beyond that. Everyone else I would be happy to see and if there is time I would stop and talk to them. This guy would just get a simple wave and a greeting. I just have to be nice not be his buddy.
So how do I get him to lay off?
