A GSA club is a student-run club in a high school or middle school that brings together LGBTQI+ and straight students to support each other, provide a safe place to socialize, and create a platform to fight for racial, gender, LGBTQ, and economic justice. "GSA" has historically stood for Gay-Straight Alliance, however many clubs have expanded the name of their clubs beyond the binary Gay-Straight terminology. Some examples include: Genders & Sexualities Alliance, Queer Students Alliance, Pride Club, etc. Learn more.
GSA Network helps LGBTQ students and straight allies organize GSA clubs focused on activism to create safer schools.
GSA Network’s resources empower students to advocate for safe schools policies, mobilize their peers to stand up for safety and equality, and train teachers to stop bullying.
By providing in-depth leadership and activist training for youth, GSA Network is building a generation of leaders for LGBTQ rights and social justice.
As a youth-driven organization, GSA Network brings the voices and perspectives of youth to the forefront of the LGBTQ movement.
GSA Network’s successful youth-led organizing in California is a national model that is accelerating the growth and impact of the GSA movement nationwide.
