"I joined GLOW because I wanted to be part of an open space where I could connect with other queer people and allies. I love being a member of GLOW because it's a great place to make friends, and I'm so proud of the motivated, inclusive community that we've created."
What is GLOW?
GLOW is a registered GSA (Genders & Sexualities Alliance). The club aims to unite LGBTQ+ students and allies in order to build a stronger, more welcoming community and create a safe social space for all students.
During the 2021/2022 academic year:
- GLOW co-sponsored the popular LTS Black Light Dance
- Members created educational presentations to share during Morning Meetings
- Members discussed ways to raise awareness of issues faced by the LGBTQ+ community
- GLOW raised more than $500 to donate to The Trevor Project – a nonprofit focused on suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning youth – by selling neon links in school and hosting a Bake Sale during the Black Light Dance
