Gay–straight alliance

A Gay–Straight Alliance (GSA) is a student-led or community-based organization, found in middle schools and high schools as well as colleges and universities, primarily in the United States and Canada, that are intended to provide a safe and supportive environment for LGBT youth (or those who are perceived as such) and their straight allies. In middle schools and high schools, GSAs are overseen by a responsible teacher. The first GSAs were established in the 1980s.

Talk about being bullied

Contributed by Dalia Soltero

I see GSA as a safe place where no one is to be made fun of regardless of their sexuality. It's for people with all different sexualities and their alliances. People who are in GSA don't have to be "gay" there are many people who are in it who "appear" to be but are not and they're made of for it every day. We want to make a difference for the better. People shouldn't be ashamed of who they love regardless of their gender. If a guy wants to dress up in a dress or a girl wants to wear a tux let them! It's what they're comfortable with and who they are! "Why can't you like guys like a normal girl?" ~Ignorant Person:0 "Why can't a rose taste like apples? It's just who I am." _Awesome Person(: But even more than that we're a family. We look past each other's differences and accept who they are because everyone is beautiful in their own unique way. "Normal" is nonexistant and it's about time society comes that realization.

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.

5 reasons you should add your own images and videos:

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
  2. Help others learn in a fun way.
  3. Make someone else interested in this topic laugh or say wow!
