Gender Sexuality Alliance

Picture representing Gender Sexuality Alliance

April 24-28, we will be building awareness of issues surronding gender identity and sexuality, culminating in a day of silence on April 28.

1. Day of Silence: Students can sign up to participate during lunch. They will receive a sticker to wear on the day of silence, April 28, and information cards to hand out as explanation for silence.

2. Break the Silence: There are three boxes in the school: in the library, in guidance, and at lunch. Students can share a story anonymously of how they have been silenced in any way for their sexuality or gender identity. Alternatively, they can share a positive experience of how they were supported. Students can also share stories as witnesses.

3. Awareness: Each day, at sign ups, there will be information about gender identity and sexuality issues, history, literature, and resources for those intersted.
