Day of Silence, April 15, 2016

The GLSEN Day of Silence is a student-led national event that brings attention to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools. Students from middle school to college take a vow of silence in an effort to encourage schools and classmates to address the problem of anti-LGBT behavior by illustrating the silencing effect of bullying and harassment on LGBT students and those perceived to be LGBT.

Our Mission

What I want to do with the program, before anything, is to provide a safe environment for people in the LGBT community. When I was a freshman, joining this club, I felt safe. Especially getting to know straight people who joined the club because they support the LGBT community.

It was difficult for me, because I was coming out that year to my family and I have 2 homophobic parents, and I know that there must be someone who has it more difficult.

I also want to give those who have someone important in their lives that are a part of this community and want to know what they can do to be there for them.

And for those who came out already, I want them to share their experiences coming out. I'll even share first.
