The Gender and Sexuality Association (formerly the Gay Straight Alliance) is a student club that celebrates diversity and raises awareness around issues of sexual orientation and gender identity. We seek to help create a school environment free from harassment, intimidation and bullying based on perceived differences. We welcome students of all identities and orientations and we offer a safe space where students are free to be themselves.
Creating Safe Spaces for Diversity: (Trans)gender Issues in Public Education
This evening panel discussion on April 2, 2014 was a first-of-its-kind event for a public school in New Jersey. The event was open to the entire community, and involved 5 guest panelists speaking of their experiences as trans students in public schools. The discussion generated a great deal of interest and helped raise awareness of issues we still need to work on to make public schools truly inclusive.
