By County

For a list of WNY high schools that have
Gay Straight Alliances (GSAs) or diversity clubs,
please see the “GSAs in WNY” page.

While GLYS does not have sites in Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Genesee, Niagara, Orleans or Wyoming Counties, we will do our best to list resources for GLBTQ youth and their friends that are available in those areas.  If you know of a resource that should be included, please let us know!

WNY educators who are helping to make their schools safer for GLBTQ students and their friends are being presented with the GLYS  “Babs Conant/Camille Cox School Ally Award.”  As these awards are presented, these teachers, counselors, librarians and administrators will be listed on the Awards page under High School in the navigation bar.
