A Letter from GLSEN Tampa Bay
GLSEN Tampa Bay is one of two Florida chapters of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). Our local chapter strives to assure that each member of every school community is valued and respected regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.
GLSEN Tampa Bay works with other organizations such as PFLAG Tampa and Tampa Youth Project. Together we all work to create a safe and affirming community for all persons.
GLSEN Tampa engages in a variety of activities to support our mission. GLSEN Tampa Bay has created a devision for youth so that we can be more involved with schools, GSA's and other youth affiliated programs. We call it the Tampa Youth Project.
We are always looking to expand opportunities for volunteering, as there are lots of events and activities to participate in and plan in order to support our LGBT youth and assist our schools' efforts to create safe and welcoming environments for all students.
If you are interested in becoming involved in our chapter, please start out by attending one of our meetings (every 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6:00 PM at Metro Wellness & Community Center in Ybor City). For directions and other information, click here!
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions that are not answered on this site. Thank you for you interest and we are looking forward to seeing you at our next meeting!
