GSA Clubs - Gender Sexuality Alliance Clubs

Championing issues in K-12 education since 1990, the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN) seeks to make LGBTQ persons a protected class enumerating specific "rights" schools must secure for students and teachers. 

GLSEN is the force behind the Day of Silence.

Formerly Gay Straight Alliance, Gender Sexuality Alliance (GSA) clubs are promoted in middle and high schools. 

“GSAs for short, are student-run organizations that unite LGBTQ+ and allied youth to build community and organize around issues impacting them in their schools and communities. GSAs have evolved beyond their traditional role to serve as “safe spaces” for LGBTQ+ youth in middle schools and high schools, and have emerged as vehicles for deep social change related to racial, gender, and educational justice.

Using school climate-surveys, they make the case that GSAs provide essential support for transgender students while enlisting other students as allies, and sponsoring school-wide LGBTQ educational activities. However, GSA support for LGBTQ students is agenda-driven, putting LGBTQ identity front and center and limiting parents' involvement. Schools generally cannot require parental permission before joining a club.
