Coalition Member Spotlight: Equality Florida Gay-Straight Alliance Network

Posted on: November 2nd, 2011

The Florida GSA Network is a program Equality Florida dedicated to promoting safe schools by helping GSAs form and grow through peer support, leadership development and student empowerment. GSAs are student-led clubs, usually at the high school or middle school level that promote respect for all students. The groups can be formed as a support, activist, educational or social group. The 3 main ways GSA helps is to create safe schools, educate schools and communities, and fight discrimination, harassment and violence within schools. The Network offers examples of how to be a straight ally and supporter. GSA is a way for LGBTQ and non-LGBTQ student members to gain an alliance and better understand one another.
