Posters, Movies and More
Art and media are powerful tools for raising visibility for your GSA club and the issues affecting the LGBTQ community. The posters, movies, plays, and more that you’ll find in this section can be used to fight homophobia and transphobia in your school. GSA clubs build youth leadership capacity by planning actions, events, and classroom presentations that incorporate these tools. Use these resources to create events and actions that inspire your GSA club and fellow students to take action!
