Gay–straight student alliances or queer–straight student alliances are student-run and teacher-supported school-based groups that work to create welcoming, caring, respectful and safe spaces for students of diverse gender identities and sexual orientations and their allies in schools. GSAs or QSAs are designed to provide a safe space that respects diversity and fosters a sense of belonging and each club looks different based on the specific needs of a school. The purpose of a GSA or QSA is for students to meet, socialize, and support one another as they discuss their feelings and experiences related to sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.
