What is a GSA?

Gay-Straight Alliances or Gender-Sexuality Alliances (GSAs) are confidential, student-run clubs or groups in schools that serve as a safe space for all students, regardless of their orientation or gender identity/expression. GSAs provide a place for students for students to meet, support, and listen to each other about their experiences, talk about issues related to orientation and gender identity/expression, and work to end homophobia and transphobia in their school.
