GLSEN's Day of Silence is a student-led national event organized in thousands of schools, bringing awareness to the silencing effects of anti-LGBTQ name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools. Students from middle school to college 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.


Make it official by registering your Day of Silence participation with GLSEN. The first 3,000 registrants will receive free swag to help you organize the day in your school. ALL registrants will be provided free downloadable posters, organizing resources, and a 25% discount off all Day of Silence merchandise in the GLSEN Shop.

Make your voice heard. GLSEN’s Day of Silence is culminating in a massive call to action to make sure your governor is pushing for the most comprehensive and inclusive LGBTQ policies in schools.
