Gender & Sexuality Alliance
Middle School Student Club for LGBTQ+ Youth & Allies
The Gender and Sexuality Alliance, or GSA, is a club for middle school students that meets weekly to learn, share, and discuss the stories, experiences, and issues of the LGBTQ+ community. The GSA is a student-led club that is supported by an adult advisor. Members of the club may be people who identify as members of the LGBTQ+ community or their allies. Students involved with this club plan what they walk to talk about and organize events and activities that they want to do.
The GSA meets once per week during lunch for 30 minutes in a middle school teacher’s classroom.
To learn more about the GSA, contact Devon Collins at email@example.com.
