GLBTQ

Disclaimer: Although we believe in the power of professional help, you are responsible for selecting the provider or treatment. PXU cannot accept responsibility for any of the services provided by these or any other providers.

Did you know that 7.6 percent of GLBTQ (Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, and Questioning) students felt unsafe at school because of their sexual orientation, and 43% because of their gender expression? GLBTQ youth are four times more likely to attempt suicide, experience suicidal thoughts, or engage in self-haring behaviors than their straight peers. The GLBTQ community is about three times more likely than others to experience a mental health condition such as major depression or generalized anxiety disorder.

College and Scholarship guides

Study.com is a leading online education resource making learning accessible for over 30 million students and educators a month. The team at Study.com recognizes that LGBTQ+ students might have questions about applying for and attending college that might be difficult to find answers to. That's why we have recently developed comprehensive college and scholarship guides for LGBTQ+ students. Our goal is to inform them about critical information regarding their college education and career choices to help set them up for success. Our College Guide for LGBTQ Students and Scholarship Guide for LGBTQ Students offer in-depth information in several areas, including:

  • LGBTQ student resources and organizations

  • Title IX and other protections for the LGBTQ community

  • A guide to evaluating Colleges as an LGBTQ student

  • A comprehensive list of scholarships available to LGBTQ youth

We would like to take our part in improving LGBTQ+ students' college experiences and help them make the best college choices possible.

TGB GSA club

Gay-Straight-Alliance clubs, or GSAs for short, are student-run organizations that unite LGBTQ+ and allied youth to build community and organize around issues impacting them in their schools and communities. GSAs have evolved beyond their traditional role to serve as safe spaces for LGBTQ+ youth in middle schools and high schools, and have emerged as vehicles for deep social change related to racial, gender, and educational justice.

A growing body of research confirms that the presence of a GSA has a positive and lasting effect on student health, wellness, and academic performance. It can also protect students from harassment based on sexual orientation or gender identity, and improve school climates for all students in the long-term.

TGB’s GSA Club meets virtually in Teams Thursdays 2:30-3:30.

Anyone is welcome to join our club who wants to promote equality for all students at Trevor G. Browne High School
