Gender and Sexual Orientation Alliance

What is a GSA?

  • A Gender and Sexual Orientation Alliance (GSA) is a safe space for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) young people.
  • It is for LGBT young people and allies who want to assist in making Cleveden Secondary School an inclusive learning environment for all.

Why is this important in Cleveden Secondary?

Why is creating a GSA important?

  • LGBT Youth Scotland research found that:
  • 69% of LGBT young people have experienced homophobic or biphobic bullying in school
  • 77% of transgender respondents experienced homophobic, biphobic or transphobic bullying.
  • If you want to join the GSA:
  • You do not need to declare or define your sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
  • You can bring forward any ideas about discussions, activities and events.
  • Everyone is welcome.


What will we do in the gsa?

  • We will create our own mission statement for what we want to achieve in Cleveden Secondary.
  • We will discuss any issues pupils may be facing in school and think of ways to resolve them.
  • We will promote inclusion in the school through creating posters, wall displays and events.
  • We will also have some social times where we will relax, chat and play games.
  • The GSA is on every Monday lunchtime in room 022.
