Gay-Straight Alliances (GSAs) are student clubs that work to improve school climate for all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression. 4,000 GSAs are registered with GLSEN.
GLSEN keeps a count of GSAs across the country. By registering for the GSA Census, GSAs are able to access GLSEN resources and network with other students and advisors. Please make sure your GSA is registered.
GLSEN has created a series of 8 how-to guides for new and already established GSAs. The resources take you through the process of establishing your GSA, identifying your mission and goals, and assessing your school's climate. Learn how to make your school a safer place for all its students.
