Be sure to register your GSAs

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

The Gay & Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN) Washington state is reminding students and faculty to not forget to register their Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) clubs; forgoing registration could potentially mean losing out on the great tips, tricks, and activities in store for GSAs next school year.

'As we wrap up another school year, we can't help but beam with pride as we reflect on all the great things GSAs did this year to make schools safer for LGBT youth,' said GLSEN Washington officials. 'Share this image on Facebook or Twitter if you love GSAs as much as we do!'

'In case you have not heard, GLSEN has a bunch of resources in store for the next school year to take GSAs to the next level,' continued officials. 'Why wait till Fall to register your GSA?'

To register your GSA go to http://action.glsen.org/page/s/GSAregistration.

The registration process is fairly easy and takes all of about five minutes to complete. Registering gives an opportunity for a school-based GSA to be counted as one of the thousands of student clubs across the country working to make schools safer and more affirming for all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.

'Everyday GLSEN, its programs, its chapters and its people, touch the lives of a student some place in this country,' GLSEN national says on its website www.glsen.org.

'The teenager in the cafeteria having the courage to walk past an army of tormentors,' say officials. 'The Transgender student agonizing about using the restroom. The ally that stands up and says enough. They all rely on GLSEN to provide the support, knowledge or resource to get through the day. They look for the Safe Space sticker and know there is an adult they can count on. Without GLSEN their lives would be very different.'

Don't have a GSA but want to start one in the Fall? GLSEN Washington state can help! Go to http://glsen.org/gsa to learn more about the benefits of having a GSA in school, tips on starting a GSA, and finding new members.

'Enjoy your summer,' say GLSEN Washington officials. 'We're looking forward to continue working with you to make your school a place where all students can thrive.'
