GSA Resources & Visits

 

GSA Resources

We've created a living Google Doc of links to resources, GSA activity ideas, and best practices.

 

 

 

You can also download a PDF file of the 2021 Fall GSA Kit here. In it, you'll find things like Pride Zoom and cell phone backgrounds, a Spotify playlist curated by the SHINE Team, book recommendations, and helpful resource guides for your GSA like:

And be sure to check out our Resources for Students & Families Guide for local resources and opportunities for LGBTQ+ youth.

You can find more articles and activities in the Student and GSA Resources section of the GLSEN National website here.

My school’s GSA was the first place where I was able to immerse myself within the LGBTQ+ community and really understand my identity. Being able to educate myself and others, lend support to my peers, and bring awareness to important issues has had a profound impact on me. Starting a GSA Club is one of the most significant things you can do to provide a sense of security, community, and sanguinity for LGBTQ+ students at your school.

GLSEN Arizona Visiting Your GSA

One of the community needs the 2022-23 SHINE Team assessed in the Summer Retreat was the need for GSAs to have more access to resources and be better connected to each other.

To address this need, the Team has put together a short presentation for GSAs to learn more about GLSEN and SHINE and for us to learn more about the current school climate for LGBTQ+ students.

The current SHINE Team is scheduling visits to GSAs for November onward. If we don't have team members in your school's area yet, the Team can conduct a virtual visit. Email students@glsenarizona.org to request a visit from the SHINE Team!
