All of the MMSD high schools and many middle schools have Gay Straight Alliances. These groups take on a variety of activities depending on the interests and energy of the particular group. Typically they engage in social activities, education, leadership development, as well as social justice work. Some examples of these include, organizing Day of Silence, Words Hurt activities, speaking to health classes, leading workshops at bi-annual conferences, and much more.

Contact your particular high school or middle school’s student services staff for times/ locations of GSA meetings.

GSAFE, encharged with creating just schools where LGBTQ+ youth thrive, ( helps with support and training of staff for these groups. (see outside resources section)
