A double-decker bus behind them also has a GLSEN banner and more volunteers on the roof. The banners reads: GLSEN, Championing LGBT Issues in K-12 Schools Since 1990; GLSEN, Creating LGBTQ Inclusive Schools. The posters read: Resist; Protect LGBTQ Students; All Students Deserve Inclusive Schools; Protect Trans Students.
