Check with your school to see if they have a Gay Straight Alliance (GSA). If not, feel free to request one, if a student asks the school must provide one. GSAs often take place over the lunch break once a week for those who are gender or sexual diverse. It’s a place to make connection with people you can relate to and sometimes take on advocacy and education projects.
