Our Orange County Chapter

The Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network strives to assure that each member of every school community is valued and respected regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.

GLSEN Orange County is a Chapter of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). 

We have been serving the Orange County community since 1997. We provide resources and support for LGBT teachers and students. We advocate for students and teachers in a county where GSA's are still banned from campuses (in violation of federal law), and teachers don't feel safe being out.

Chapters like ours play an important role in bringing GLSEN's programs and visions to local communities. While some chapters have full-time or part-time staff, most are entirely volunteer-based. We are always looking for new volunteers to help us ensure safe schools for all students. 

Please explore our website to find out more about our work here in Orange County and to learn about how you can get involved in local and national events. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions that are not answered on this site. Thank you for you interest and we're looking forward to hearing from you.
