Additional Information

Gender Sexualities Alliance


Gender Sexualities Alliance Network is a national youth leadership organization that connects school-based Gender Sexualities Alliances (GSAs) to each other and community resources through peer support, leadership development, and training. GSA Network supports young people in starting, strengthening, and sustaining GSAs and builds the capacity of GSAs to: 1. create safe environments in schools for students to support each other and learn about homophobia, transphobia, and other oppressions, 2. educate the school community about homophobia, transphobia, gender identity, and sexual orientation issues, and 3. fight discrimination, harassment, and violence in schools. The Gender Sexualities Alliance provides a safe environment for students to discuss issues related to sexual orientation both within and without the Staples community. Each year, the students organize events to commemorate Ally Day as well as the Day of Silence. Students also share a bus with area GSAs to attend the annual True Colors Conference for Sexual Minority Youth. The Gender Sexualities Alliance serves both a support function as well as a social function, with the GSA meeting with area GSAs for meetings, movies, picnics and other events.
