A 2016 Vanderbilt University study reported that LGBTQ+ students in schools with a Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) were 52 percent less likely to hear homophobic remarks and experience bullying in school. This title provides the tools and resources to organize a GSA and to become a proactive leader in a community. Also included in the guide are educational activities, tips for being a good ally to LGBTQ+ people of color, and a Myths & Facts section that debunks common assumptions about Gay-Straight Alliances. The comprehensive text is a valuable guide for LGBTQ+ youth and allies.
