GSA-Gender & Sexuality Alliance Events

Day of Silence, April 21

A number of students have signed up to participate in the Day of Silence, which is the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network’s (GLSEN) annual day of action to spread awareness about the effects of the bullying and harassment of LGBTQ+ students. Students take a vow of silence for the day in order to stand in solidarity with the social silencing that many LGBTQ+ students experience on a daily basis, out of fear of repercussions for living their true selves — a fear that remains very real for students across the country, around the world, and even in our school.


Northampton Pride, May 6

All community members are welcome to join the GSA in celebration of their own LGBTQ+ identity or in solidarity with those who identify this way. In addition to proudly carrying the banner that our Board of Trustees purchased for us last year, the GSA group will making individual signs this year to draw more attention to a range of issues faced by this demographic. Details on staging for the parade and other pertinent information for the day will be going out to interested parties as the day draws closer – stay tuned!
