GLSEN 2021 Respect Awards

2021 Respect Awards Honoring Eliza Byrd Celebration: 10.14.21

In celebration of Eliza Byard’s twenty years at the helm of GLSEN, we will create a special GLSEN Respect Celebration on October 14, 2021.

This year, there will be one Respect event combining the New York and Los Angeles events into an amazing one-time-only evening highlighting and honoring her visionary leadership and bringing together so many of the stories of LGBTQ+ students she and GLSEN have impacted.

Throughout this celebration of Eliza, we will also showcase our vision for GLSEN’s future. We see opportunity for greater safety, equity, and affirmation for every LGBTQ+ student.


Please check back soon for more details.

Make a donation today to support this special virtual event and receive periodic updates.
