Mission: To improve outcomes and enrich lives for LGBTQ youth in and out of foster care, by providing education and training to individuals within our community, child care placing agencies, and school systems.
Texas Gay Straight Alliance Network is a statewide program that unites school-based Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) student clubs to one another through peer support, leadership development and training. The Texas GSA Network supports young people in starting, strengthening, and sustaining GSAs and builds their capacity to:
- Create safe environments in schools for students to support each other and learn about homophobia and other oppressions.
- Educate their school community about homophobia, gender identity, and sexual orientation issues.
- Fight discrimination, harassment, and violence in schools.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in June of 2014. We recognize that no matter who you are, having a like-minded community is key to living a healthy lifestyle. We strive to unite LGBT+ high school students who live near one another through an online platform that operates in partnership with youth-serving professionals, keeping the platform safe. We believe that the real-life friendships formed on our community platform will lead to a decrease in the struggles that are common among LGBT+ youth, such as homelessness, depression, and even suicide.
