This FREE conference is for students and teachers who have a GSA or are interested in starting one in their school. At this conference you will learn strategies to help create, support, and sustain your GSA, meet other inspiring students and teachers from across the province, and learn more about sexual and gender minority (LGBTQ) youth issues through a series of workshops, resource displays, and an amazing keynote presentation/performance from Canadian musician and educator Kate Reid!

It is our hope that this conference will help connect, educate, and inspire you to create inclusive school communities, which value diversity and difference as a fundamental part of creating a safe, welcoming and respectful school environment. Most importantly, this conference is about learning leadership skills, developing self- and social-esteem, and having fun!
