The Day of Silence brings attention to bullying and harassment against the LGBT community by taking a vow of silence. This year’s Day of Silence was April 21st. Thank you to all who participated. Your silence echoed the silence of the LGBTQ+ community.
Pronounced as “glisten”, this organization helps promote safe environments and education in schools for the LGBT community. It raises awareness for specific issues and promotes events (such as the Day of Silence) as well as conducting research to better understand the problems we face as a society.
