It is a homosexual pressure group established in 1990 that uses the motto "safe schools for all students" to promote an environment of censorship where it is unsafe for students or teachers to question the homosexual agenda or to express any opinion about homosexuality other than approval. It also holds conferences called PrideWorks sponsored also by Planned Parenthood and featuring workshops on "Gender Construction".
Although GLSEN "envisions a world in which every child learns to respect and accept all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.", GLSEN discriminates against persons with a Biblical worldview and will not tolerate the voice of ex-gays or those helped by reparative therapy. If you disagree with the homosexual platform, GLSEN considers you to be a homophobe or bigot. GLSEN's view is flawed because they do not practice respect for all persons that they teach.
Many public schools throughout the United States promote the homosexual agenda, oftentimes through publicly-funded school programs created by GLSEN. Much of this was the work of the Obama Administration. GLSEN also promotes the homosexual agenda through a "day of silence."
Promoting and enforcing the homosexual agenda
The Traditional Values Coalition states regarding GLSEN, which co-sponsored a workshop where "instructors encouraged children as young as 14 years of age to engage in life-threatening sex acts.":
|“|| GLSEN targets children for recruitment into the homosexual lifestyle...through GLSEN chapters that sponsor hundreds of Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) clubs on junior high and high school campuses across the United States.
GLSEN gets into schools by claiming that homosexual and transgender students need to feel safe and encouraged; and that so-called homosexual/transgender teens have high rates of suicide and need a support group. When this tactic fails, GLSEN then threatens legal action against school districts that refuse to allow these recruitment clubs on campus. The American Civil Liberties Union has volunteered to serve as the enforcement arm of GLSEN to impose a homosexual agenda on the nation's public schools.
