A new Wichita chapter of the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network will host a meeting Sunday aimed at helping students establish or foster gay-straight alliance groups at their schools.

A new Wichita chapter of the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network will host a meeting Sunday aimed at helping students establish or foster gay-straight alliance groups at their schools.

The meeting is 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday at Wichita State University, Ahlberg Hall Room 210. It is open to anyone with an interest in starting or supporting a gay-straight alliance or in building support networks at area schools.

Gay-straight alliances are clubs made up of students who advocate against anti-LGBT bullying, harassment and discrimination and work to make their schools safe and supportive for all students.

The Wichita chapter of the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, or GLSEN, was accredited by the national group earlier this year. It is the first and only chapter in Kansas.

For more information, visit www.glsen.org, e-mail wichita@chapters.glsen.org or visit the local chapter’s Facebook page at GLSEN Greater Wichita.
