Got LGBTQ Rights? Yes!

For more information about the rights of LGBTQ youth in New England, visit www.glad.org/youth

You have a right to an education - and being LGBTQ does not limit your rights at school. As a student in public school in New England.:

• You have the right to equal access and participation in all school programs, including extracurricular activities. 

• You have the right to form a GSA on the same terms and with the same privileges as any other extracurricular club.

• You have a right to attend school safely.  All New England states have laws that prohibit harassment and bullying in public schools.  What to do if you are being harassed.

• In any school that receives federal funds, you have the right not to be discriminated against or harassed based on your sex, and sometimes that right can protect LGBTQ students.

• You have the right to wear clothing consistent with your gender identity and expression.

• You have the right to acknowledge your sexual orientation and gender identity and generally have the right to express yourself on issues relating to sexual orientation or gender identity and expression.

• You have the right to learn about and have access to age appropriate resources on LGBTQ issues and people.

Private school students have fewer protections but some protections exist. Contact us.
