Celebrating the Power of Youth Organizing: GSA Network's 10th Anniversary

On November 13, 2009, we celebrated 10 years of organizing Gay-Straight Alliance clubs. Over 175 people gathered at the Hilton in San Francisco for an evening of inspiring speeches, award presentations, and the chance to meet civil rights and entertainment legend, Nichelle Nichols.

The event showcased GSA Network's accomplishments over the last decade and honored middle and high school students who stand up to homophobia and transphobia in their schools.
