GLSEN's Day of Silence is April 21! It's the largest student-led national event in protest of anti-LGBTQ bullying in schools. Students take a vow of silence in an effort to encourage schools and classmates to address the problem of anti-LGBTQ behavior by illustrating the silencing effect of bullying and harassment on LGBTQ students and those perceived to be LGBTQ.
Often, at the end of the day, participants "break the silence" with a rally, open mic, or other event where they plan how they'll work to address anti-LGBTQ bullying at school (Here's a guide with ideas!).
Student leaders from GLSEN's National Student Council created this playlist that you can use when you break the silence and commit to making your school LGBTQ-inclusive.
