Gender & Sexuality Alliances

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 today!

State-Wide GSA Youth Organizing Meetings

This virtual space is designed to be a platform for youth organizing, for them to share idea, and co-create queer liberation movements. The space is on the SECOND Wednesday of every month from 12 to 1pm. Any youth are invited to these meetings. Come learn how you can get involved with a GSA, create a GSA in your community, or bring your GSA to this state-wide co-working space.

If you would like to join for these meetings, connect with your GSA advisor or complete this brief intake form. Identity’s Youth Program Manager, Justin, will send you the zoom link.
