Dear LGBTQ Youth,

I’m 33 years old, and my mother still tells me to “be safe” when I walk out of her house. In that moment, it’s like she’s seeing all the parts of me that add higher threat levels to my existence: queer, brown, deemed masculine presenting on sight, tattooed chubby dyke.

How many parents and guardians say the same words to their children as they walk out the door? How many of them see all the things they can’t protect us from as we exit the safety of their homes and are consumed by a vibrant but utterly chaotic world?

And that’s for those of us who have that type of love and support from our parents or guardians. That type of love and support is not a given for our LGBTQ community; it’s a luxury, just like the idea of safety.

Pulse. Orlando. 49 humans. LGBTQ. Allies. Puerto Ricans. Lovers. Sons. Siblings. Humans. Celebrating pride.

Celebrating because we as LGBTQ people have always been here, shining brightly, living out loud and in Technicolor, and we will continue to thrive.

Celebrating because what else can you do but find the glory and beauty in all the people who are blessed to be queer and brown? Because it’s Latinx night and all the world in this moment is yours.

Celebrating because our defiance is miraculous.

Because no matter what laws they pass or how many times the bigoted, violent forces come for us, we rally and push back with every ounce of our universe-given right to live free and out loud.

LGBTQ youth, know that we, LGBTQ adults and allies, strive to create safer schools and communities for you and with you.

Know that as hard as we try, we cannot 100% eradicate the recklessness and cruelty found in an often homophobic, racist, transphobic, anti-Black, anti-immigrant and pro-violence society.

Know that we use our spirits, our bodies and our work in every way possible to build hope and community for all of you.

The forces attempting to suppress and eliminate the LGBTQ community are strong and you should know this. 

You probably already know this.

It probably already lives on your skin.

We learn about the world off the blood of our family members.

We are here with 49 people to mourn, and thousands of our community members grieving, mourning and afraid to go out and dance into the night.

So what do we do? How do we move forward in bravery when our lives are at risk?

How do we reclaim our community?

We must reach for each other.

We cannot shield you from the often harsh realities of this world, but we can hold tremendous healing spaces for each other.

We rally our GSAs and organize vigils in our schools.

We embrace the grief process. Let ourselves cry.

We find solace in each other so that our wounds can begin to heal.

We gather our friends and offer home-cooked meals.

We work on those zines about radical queerness, intersectionality and summer love.

We put on Pariah and find strength in Alike. 

We write articles and blogs about ourselves, in our words because others cannot tell our stories for us.

We dive deep into our studies and our passions because no one can stop us from excelling.

We name our fears, our oppressors and all that must be changed.

We put pressure on school officials, city council people, senators and other folks in positions of power.

We take over bridges as we march for justice.


We must continue to do the work and strengthen our communities because they belong to us.

We must engage in all of this work while loving on each other and forcing the world to stretch with us, with our queer, trans, non-binary, asexual, bisexual, Latinx, Black, Muslim, Asian-Pacific Islander, Buddhist, Atheist, neurodivergent, totally glorious human selves.

So, let’s hold each other by the hand and say, “I love you”.

I love you because you’re my chosen family.

I love you because we just met on this dance floor, and I never knew my heart could feel so whole.

I love you because you’re brave enough to cry.
And vote.
And rally.
And rest.

I love you because you are vibrant, visible and glowing with pride.

I love you enough to keep fighting and thriving.

I cannot make the world safer, but I can walk with you.

I will dance with you.

We will dance together.

Because we are Pulse, we are Orlando, and we will never forget our fallen siblings in the struggle.

Dear GLSEN family,  

The last several days, as you might imagine, have been extremely difficult for us in Orlando and for the larger communities grieving at this time, as our hearts remain heavy after last Sunday’s tragedy. But I take comfort in sharing my experience with you and in knowing that across the country and world, we have each other’s support as we all move forward.

In Orlando, we feel a deep sense of grief but also an inspiring sense of solidarity. Last week, I attended one of many vigils honoring the victims of the tragedy. This vigil was as at Valencia College, where seven of the victims were students. Valencia’s GSA sponsor, whom GLSEN Orlando knows well, delivered beautiful remarks about the importance of creating safe spaces—off-the-cuff, genuine words that were exactly what we needed to hear. Her words were moving.

That same day, Thomas Lawson, a GLSEN Orlando Vice Chair, attended a press conference hosted by mayor Teresa Jacobs. A sense of solidarity was palpable there, too. Leaders of our communities—LGBT leaders, Latinx leaders, political leaders, leaders of faith—expressed not only their mourning but also their love. Especially now, it is truly encouraging to see diverse leaders come together and lend their voices of support.

As we move forward in the process of healing, which is only beginning, I hope that you, too, join us in solidarity. There are many ways to support:

Thank you so much for the incredible support at this time. I don’t think you know how much it means.

Chair of GLSEN Orlando

Para la familia GLSEN,

Anoche en el Stonewall Inn aquí en la ciudad de Nueva York, y en miles de vigilias similares en todo el país, la gente se reunió en memoria de las víctimas del ataque club nocturno Pulse en la ciudad de Orlando. En tiempos de crisis, buscamos oportunidades para estar juntos, para conectarnos con los demás, y que sea visible nuestro duelo y nuestra determinación de superarnos.

La pérdida de las 49 personas fallecidas y las decenas de heridos, en el club Pulse ocurrido el domingo es casi más de lo que podemos soportar. La mayoría de las víctimas eran LGBTQ. La mayoría de las víctimas eran latinos. Muchos eran recién graduados de la escuela secundaria. El autor ha sido identificado como musulmán, y para muchos participantes musulmanes en estas vigilias, el duelo se mezcla con el miedo de asalto verbal o venganza violenta. No podemos permitir que eso ocurra en nuestra guardia.

En su mejor momento, cuando todos los que se reúnen son conscientes de su propósito común, estas reuniones pueden ayudar a sanar, y demostrar nuestra capacidad de crear poder en la comunidad a pesar de nuestras diferencias.

Nuestros mejores instintos en estos momentos es imitar  lo que los educadores aprenden a  hacer para ayudar a los estudiantes después de de una tragedia o un trauma. La Asociación Americana de Consejeros Escolares sugiere que cuando el miedo, la violencia o el odio destrozan comunidades escolares, los educadores deben "reconstruir y reafirmar lazos y relaciones" con el fin de restablecer un sentido de conexión, y "hacer frente a su propia reacción ante una crisis y el estrés "con el fin de ser capases de ayudar a sanar a comunidad abatida. 

En nuestro trabajo a través  los años, hemos creado una organización dedicada a construir conexiones por medio  de nuestras diferencias, fomentando el respeto para todos, y, quizá sobre todo, dedicado al poder de transformación de las comunidades de aprendizaje donde se valora y se respeta a cada estudiante  exactamente quienes son. Hemos sido testigos del poder de los líderes estudiantiles educando a tales comunidades, sabemos por qué todo este  trabajo vale la pena. 

En este momento de dolor y luto, todos nosotros en GLSEN, tenemos una contribución importante que hacer.

Ya sea un educador, estudiante, líder de zona, o un donante, estos eventos trágicos hacen un llamado a cada uno de nosotros para apoyarnos mutuamente en nuestro dolor, para construir una comunidad con aquellos de otras comunidades, y colectivamente encontrar la fuerza para continuar adelante con trabajo. 

Juntos, y solamente unidos, podemos crear escuelas, y un mundo con igualdad y respeto para todos.

PD. Si desea encontrar u organizar una vigilia en su área, visite

En solidaridad,

To the GLSEN Family, 

Last night at the Stonewall Inn here in New York City, and at thousands of similar vigils around the country, people came together in remembrance of the victims of the attack at Pulse in Orlando. In times of crisis, we seek opportunities to be together, to connect with others, and to be visible in our mourning and our determination to overcome. 

The loss of the 49 people killed, with dozens more injured, at Pulse's Latin Night on Sunday is almost more than we can take. Most of the victims were LGBTQ. Most of the victims were Latino. Many were barely out of high school. The perpetrator has been identified as Muslim, and for many Muslim participants in these vigils, mourning is mixed with fear of verbal assault or violent retaliation. We cannot allow that to happen on our watch.

At their best, when all who gather are mindful of their common purpose, these gatherings can help us heal, and demonstrate our ability to create power in community despite our differences.

Our best instincts in these moments mirror what educators learn they must do for students in the aftermath of tragedy or trauma. The American Association of School Counselors suggests that when fear, violence, or hate rip school communities apart, educators must “rebuild and reaffirm attachments and relationships” in order to reestablish a sense of connection, and "deal with their own response to crisis and stress" in order to be able to help repair broken community.

In our work together over the years, all of us have created an organization dedicated to building connections across lines of difference, promoting respect for all, and, perhaps above all, dedicated to the transformative power of learning communities where every single student is valued and respected for exactly who they are. And as we have witnessed the power of the student leaders nurtured in such communities, we know why all that hard work is worth it.

At this moment of pain and mourning, we all, as GLSEN, have an important contribution to make.

Whether an educator, student, chapter leader, or donor, these tragic events call upon each of us to support one another in our grief, to build community with those from other communities, and collectively find resilience for the work ahead.

Together, and only together, can we create schools, and a world, with equality and respect for all.

ps. If you would like to find or organize a vigil in your area, visit

In solidarity,

Eliza Byard

Dear Educators,
Today, as shocking news of the horrific attack in Orlando filtered through my timelines, feeds and inbox, I paused to think about what it will be like for you to return to your students tomorrow. 
In the coming days and weeks, as we all struggle to understand the depth of this tragedy, many students will have questions and face a range of emotions. 
The fact that you are connected to GLSEN means that you care about the wellbeing and success of LGBT students, and I bet you are among those educators whom students may turn to tomorrow. Having a supportive educator to turn to can make all of the difference in the world to students who need a haven to discuss their feelings and responses to the events that occurred. This is particularly important for LGBT, Latino and Muslim students who may be feeling especially vulnerable because of the identities of the victims and the perpetrator in today's horrific events.
Below is a short list of crisis response and emotional support resources that we hope complement your school-based support services and provide you with the guidance and reassurance you need as you navigate your way through the coming days. 
Need Someone to Talk To (or know someone who does)?
For those needing additional support, there are several agencies and hotlines offering their services:
1) The Disaster Distress Helpline 1-800-985-5990. The Helpline can provide immediate counseling to anyone who needs help in dealing with the tragic event in Orlando Florida. The Helpline is a 24 hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week resource that responds to people who need crisis counseling after experiencing a natural or man-made disaster or tragedy. The helpline can also be accessed at and TTY for deaf and hearing impaired: 1-800-846-8517.
2) You can also contact the English/Spanish hotline of the New York City Anti-Violence Project at 212-714-1141.
3) The Trevor Project is also providing support at 866-488-7386 and They are particularly good at working with youth. 
Wondering How to Address the Topic with Students?
Your school or district may have specific guidelines to follow after traumatic events. There are also organizations who have developed resources for schools to use in the wake of any crisis:
1) Download the NEA Healthy Futures School Crisis Guide (Parts 2 and 3 will be the most useful)  
2) Visit American School Counselor Association website for a comprehensive list of crisis response and mental health resources for educators. There you will find best practices and tools to help your school community respond immediately to the needs of students and continue the healing in the coming weeks and months.
3) Of course, information on LGBT-affirming practices as part of your everyday work is available from GLSEN in our Ready, Set, Respect!(Grades K-5) and Safe Space Kit (Grades 6-12) toolkits, which can be downloaded at
Looking for Community?
Vigils across the country are being held in remembrance of the victims of the shooting and can be found, or submitted, to You can also find current information about how best to help those directly impacted by the shooting. 
With great sadness, we offer our most heartfelt condolences to the friends and loved ones of the many people affected by such a senseless act of violence. Amid our collective grief we are also reminded of the urgent need to continue our work together in schools to eliminate anti-LGBT bias and violence.
As always, we appreciate the meaningful and challenging work you do each day to support students and provide them with safe, caring and respectful places to learn. Thank you for providing that absolutely essential support. Our thoughts are with you as you navigate this difficult time.
Warmest regards,
Jenny Betz
GLSEN Director of Education & Youth Programs

Last night at the LGBT nightclub Pulse in Orlando, Fla., a senseless attack on the LGBT community took place. With 50 reported killed and 52 injured, the tragedy is the worst mass shooting in recent United States history. We offer our sincerest condolences to the friends and family of those affected, and we are reminded of the urgent need to continue our work in schools to eliminate anti-LGBT bias and violence.

Basketball is a sport that I hold near and dear to my heart. Born and raised in the hometown of five-time NBA championship winners, the San Antonio Spurs, I played for several years and found a sense of comfort in the game that I couldn't really find anywhere else. When I was on the court, it was like the world stopped. I felt like I was home. I could forget all my other responsibilities, and I could just focus on something that I loved very much.

As I got older, I stopped playing basketball and focused on my advocacy work. I wanted to make school a safer and more affirming place for youth, regardless of how they identified or expressed themselves, so I started working with GLSEN and improved the GSA at my school. Things were starting to look pretty good. Everywhere seemed to be a safe space, until I realized I forgot the one place I used to call home: the basketball court.

I started hearing from people that players on the basketball team were making transphobic remarks. This really hit me hard; it made me infuriated. When I was on the team, I heard slightly homophobic remarks, but it sounded like the harassment of LGBTQ students had risen to another level. Now, I’m doing my best to spread the message of respect—treat others how you wish to be treated—not just in the classroom, but also on the court.

I’m so excited that others now have the opportunity to help spread the message of respect by wearing an NBA Pride shirt. It would mean the world to me to see people wearing these shirts, which were just released for LGBT Pride Month with proceeds benefiting GLSEN’s work. It would give me a whole lot of hope because I’d see people sending the message that respect for the LGBTQ community really does belong on the basketball court.

I would like to not only praise but also thank the NBA and their partner Teespring for taking initiative and helping make my former home more of a home by offering these shirts. Oftentimes, I would think that the court was a place to just drop anything and everything LGBTQ, but now I have a greater sense of hope that the court will be a safer space not only for me and other youth but for athletes and fans everywhere.

Pride shirts for every NBA team are available for purchase here. All proceeds benefit GLSEN.

From physical education class to the playing field, athletic spaces at school are often hostile places for LGBTQ youth. Unfortunately, these spaces can be so hostile that many students outright avoid them: Nearly a third avoid P.E. classes, and over a fifth avoid school athletics fields and facilities due to feeling unsafe or uncomfortable, according to GLSEN research. 

In an effort to create safer sports spaces for LGBTQ students—and help all students thrive in school—GLSEN Oregon has partnered with the Nike LGBTQ employee resource group for over a decade. Through our partnership, we bring together LGBTQ student athletes, allies, K-12 school athletic staff, school counselors, GSA student members and their advisors. Together, we share how to build safe spaces and encourage teams to build positive relationships among their teammates, athletic staff and others within their schools.

Since 2014, GLSEN Oregon and Nike have held an annual Youth Sports Summit. At these summits, members of school communities, ranging from small rural districts to large metro ones, learn about ways to establish positive sports environments. From avoiding anti-LGBTQ jokes and language to showing support for LGBTQ students athletes with a GLSEN Safe Space Sticker, we exchange a number of ways that student athletes, coaches, parents and school personnel can foster a positive climate in sports spaces at school. 

Members of school communities play a major role in creating safe sports spaces, but so do professional athletes and sports organizations, because young people look to them when choosing how to act on the field, on the court or in the locker room. When professional sports organizations visibly take action when a group is unfairly singled out or maligned, young people listen. Simply put, the leadership of these organizations matters for creating more positive experiences for LGBTQ youth in school athletics.

For this LGBT Pride Month, I am honored that GLSEN has partnered with one of these organizations, the NBA. In collaboration with TeeSpring, the NBA is offering shirts for every single NBA team, each shirt featuring the team’s logo in Pride-themed rainbow colors. Proceeds will support GLSEN’s work, including programming like GLSEN Oregon’s Nike Youth Sports Summit, where we continue to work towards safe sports spaces in school and more positive school climates for all.

Whether you’re an LGBTQ student athlete, coach, P.E. teacher or an ally, think about how you can show your LGBTQ pride this month, and check out GLSEN resources on how to make sports spaces safer and more affirming in every K-12 school.

When our GSA advisor, Michelle, first announced that we won GLSEN’s GSA of the Year, we were in complete shock, speechless even. She and Courtney, our principal, decided to announce the news during Caitlyn Jenner’s visit to our school. Not exactly your average day for high school students! At first, a few of us thought that only New York City schools were eligible for the award. And then we learned that every GSA in the country could have been nominated—every GSA in all 50 states, including states that some of us have never even been to like California and Florida and North Carolina. But our small school out in East New York, Brooklyn, is GSA of the Year. We still can’t believe it. And we still can’t believe that we got selfies with Jussie Smollett!

People always want to know what we do in our GSA. We’re not just a club. We’re a family—in school and out of school. In our GSA, we build relationships, find our voices and learn about the world outside of school. A few months ago, we organized a special workshop to meet with other GSAs. That was a big thing for us because we had the chance to mentor other LGBT students. We told them how to do a Pride Day, how to participate in GLSEN’s Day of Silence, how to talk to their principals about getting gender-neutral bathrooms, how to talk to their teachers and families about coming out, and how to spread awareness about the things LGBT students go through. These campaigns inside and outside of our school are why we deserved this award.

We’re excited to tell our stories as LGBT people of color—stories that are rarely told by the media but are so important to share. It sometimes feels like America doesn’t know that LGBT people of color are even living here. Where are our voices? Our stories? Our TV characters (with the exception of Laverne Cox, Jussie Smollett and a few others)? Our superheroes? Politicians (we can’t name any, can you?) At the GLSEN Respect Awards – New York, so many amazing people got to talk to us, learn our stories and hear the hard work we’ve been doing to make New York City public schools inclusive spaces for all LGBTQ young people.

We worked really hard for this award, whether that meant staying late at school blowing up balloons for a Pride display or mentoring students in our middle school who are still grappling with their gender identity. We worked hard because we thought that everyone needed a safe space to be themselves. People should call you by the pronoun you desire, and you should be free to go to the bathroom that you feel most comfortable in—to be you and do you. You don’t have to be scared about what other people think or say behind your back about your sexual orientation or gender identity. 

This is just the beginning, not the end. We don’t want to make a safe space for people only in America; people should have safe spaces in other countries, too. We’ve made a great change in our school and in our city, but there is so much more to do.

This Monday was the 13th Annual GLSEN Respect Awards -- New York! At the #RespectAwards, we honored an incredible set of individuals and corporations that have made a positive impact on the lives of LGBT youth and changed school climates for the better.

Among the honorees were ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos and actress Ali Wentworth, who were recognized for improving the lives of young people and for providing opportunities for marginalized communities. We also honored Ilene Chaiken, best known for her hit shows The L Word and Empire, for providing LGBT young people with role models and increasing visibility through positive media representations of LGBT people in her work. They shared the stage with Amber Schweitzer, GLSEN's Educator of the Year, and the Academy for Young Writers GSA, GLSEN's GSA of the Year, which have both worked tirelessly in their local communities to make schools safer and more affirming for every student.

Last but certainly not least, we honored Optimedia, a leader in business and media that has partnered with GLSEN for years. To elevate GLSEN's work nationwide, Optimedia has secured close to $3 million in donated ad space, from highway billboards and mall kiosks in rural parts of the country to a sky-scraper-high billboard in the heart of Times Square. They've also provided opportunities for GLSEN students at career days, and their staff members have spent countless hours on GLSEN initiatives. Optimedia is a true corporate ally to LGBT youth!

At the event, Optimedia's Kurt Wahlstrom took over GLSEN's Instagram to give us his unique view from the red carpet. He snapped photos of some of our honorees and special guests, plus other folks from his company. Check out the pics below, and follow us on Instagram @glsenofficial for more photos from the event and the latest updates on GLSEN's work!
