WHAT IS A GSA?

 

Gender and Sexuality Alliances (GSA’s), are student-led groups that strive to make their schools safer for 2SLGBTQIA+ youth. The role of a GSA can be varied depending upon what the needs are in a specific school. They can be a safe and affirming space for 2SLGBTQIA+ youth to make friends and receive support, fundraising efforts for activities, or activism and awareness groups that advocate for a more inclusive, safer school for 2SLGBTQIA+ students.
