WHAT: The 4th Annual Georgia GSA Youth Summit is a free conference for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, asexual, allied, and intersex youth activists and allies who are dedicated to defeating homophobia and transphobia and creating safe, supportive schools for everyone. The day-long Summit offers education, entertainment, HIV testing, breakout sessions, advocacy, new friendships and it’s totally FREE for students!
Last year over 350 Georgia high school and college students attended and we expect the summit will be even larger this year! We also have sessions for adult allies so teachers, counselors, and parents are welcome too. Click HERE to Register!!
