GSA The Hoosic Valley Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) is a student group (grades 9 through 12) that advocates for the tolerance and support of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth. Everyone is welcome including straight students and students with LGBT families. Our group has two main purposes:

1) To create a safe space for students to talk about various issues and discrimination they are facing as a LGBT youth, straight ally or part of a LGBT family. We hope to create a safe place to offer support and resources. 

2) To educate the broader school community about sexual orientation and gender identity issues. Our GSA will work on creating a school environment free of homophobic, verbal, physical and sexual harassment as well as advocate for the equal treatment of youth of all sexual orientations.

Our goal is to positively affect the Hoosic Valley school climate by eliminating hate speech and the silencing of students who self-identify as a LGBT youth.
