Virtual Event! Celebrating The GSA Experience: Staten Island GSA students in conversation
Celebrating The GSA Experience: Staten Island GSA students in conversation.
On May 9th 2022, Staten Island GSA students gathered together at the Alice Austen House, a nationally designated site of LGBTQ+ history. They had meetings for several weeks to prepare a program for other students across America to reflect on their GSA experiences and share their thoughts on LGBTQ+ representation in schools and community spaces. We thank them for their thoughtful insights and hope that their words inspire you to lead your GSA to new heights.
Genders & Sexualities Alliances, or 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. – GSAnetwork.org
This program is presented in collaboration with the LGBTQ+ Museum of America , The Alice Austen House and Staten Island GSA students and their leadership.
