School has started back up -- which means GSAs are kicking off again! Whether your GSA is brand-new or well established, we've got some resources to help your club set up for the year and gain some momentum.

Today is GLSEN's 18th annual Day of Silence -- and we want to hear (non-verbally) how it goes!

One Sweeeet GSA Day


Last week saw the 2nd National GSA Day -- and it was sweeeet!

All over the country, LGBT youth, allies, organizations, and schools celebrated the amazing work of Gay-Straight Alliance clubs. Iowa Pride Network, the coordinator of National GSA Day, even baked the cake above to honor all of you!
