Start a GSA

Is your administration trying to stop you from forming a GSA? Or saying they'll allow a GSA, but requiring members to get permission slips to join, telling you the GSA can't meet on campus, or making up other rules that make it almost impossible for you to meet and that no other club has to follow? Start a campaign to get a GSA at your school!

  • We need a GSA at The Nelson Mandela School for Social Justice!
    Due to a lack of education or being exposed to the LGBTQ community, the students at our school are homophobic but also sexualize the idea of being queer. A GSA would normalize being queer, it would break a lot of boundaries and stereotypical mindsets. A Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA) club would provide a much-needed safe place for students to meet, support each other, talk about issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity, and work to create positive change on campus. Under the Federal Equal Access Act (http://www.gsanetwork.org/equal-access-act), any school that receives government funding and has at least one other non-curricular club is legally required to also allow a GSA. Legally, public schools with other clubs must let students start a GSA -- and must treat the GSA like any other student club! Schools can't make up rules that only apply to the GSA and nobody else. GSAs have been proven to make schools safer for all students. Allow us to start a GSA so that ALL students can succeed.

  • DuBois
    We need a GSA at DuBois Area Senior High School!
    At our school, while some people are accepting of LGBTQ+ students in our school, there is still many ways I and many of my friends are singled out. I have come out to my mom, but my best friend hasn't, because her mother is extremely unaccepting. And there might be other students without a support group of other LGBTQ+ youth, and could form a stronger support group for other students struggling with their identities. A Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) club would provide a much-needed safe place for students to meet, support each other, talk about issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity, and work to create positive change on campus.
