Why Gay-Straight Student Alliances Matter

Black LGBT students, especially those who attend schools with mostly Black students, are less likely to have affirming programs such as Gay-Straight Alliances (GSAs). These types of programs help Black LGBT students feel more empowered and more adjusted at school, which in turn play into better grades and higher gradation rates.
