Identity coordinates with Gender & Sexuality Alliances (formerly known as Gay-Straight Alliances) throughout the school year to help build inclusive school communities and provide helpful resources to students. We work with youth leaders and faculty advisers build leadership, organizing, and activism in middle and high schools throughout Alaska. We also work to promote community and collaboration between the different school organizations. If you know of a club that could use Identity’s assistance, please email the Youth Program Manager at YPManager@identityinc.org today!
With the start of the school year, we are excited to see GSAs starting back up! GSAs provide trans and queer youth and their allies a space to build community, explore identities and advocate for liberation.
Wanna know if there is a GSA in a school or community near you? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are GSAs in communities all around the state.
Do you want to start a GSA in your school or community? Let’s do it! Tons of information is online at the national GSA Network website and it’s easy to register. As a part of the national registration drive, GSAs who sign up by Sept 30th get FREE stickers and postcards mailed to them from TRUTH!
There is a PLETHORA of resources for GSAs to use in the GSA Network resource database.
Advisors come together quarterly throughout the year to discuss the creation, maintenance and organizing of GSA spaces in community around Alaska. Any adult is invited regardless of whether they are already involved with a GSA, wanting to create one, or just looking to learn more about what GSAs are. If you would like to join for these meetings, email Identity’s Youth Program Manager at email@example.com. They will send you the zoom link.
