GLSEN (formerly known as the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network) was founded by a group of teachers in 1990. Knowing that educators play key roles in creating affirming learning environments for LGBTQ youth, they support educators and power initiatives like the Day of Silence, Ally Week, and more.

GLSEN conducts extensive and original research to inform evidence-based solutions for K-12 education and authors developmentally appropriate resources for educators to use throughout their school community.
