Frequently Asked

decorative element

GLSEN Phoenix believes that every student has the right to a safe, supportive, and LGBTQ-inclusive K-12 education. We are a local chapter of a national network of educators and students working to make this right a reality.

Our research and experience has shown that there are four major ways that schools can cultivate a safe and supportive environment for all of their students, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression: supportive educators, comprehensive policies, inclusive curriculum, and Gender Sexuality Alliances (GSAs).

At GLSEN Phoenix, we work to:

support students through GSA support, student events, and our leadership development program;

provide educators with professional development opportunities and networking;

and advocate for policies that protect LGBTQ+ students and against those that would hurt them.
