What are LGBTQ Liaisons?
Since 1989, LGBTQ Liaisons have led efforts around welcoming, safe, and supportive learning environments in middle and high school campuses across SFUSD. They are often classroom teachers, but can also be Social Workers, School Counselors, or Paras that have chosen to take on additional duties, such as:
- sponsoring regular GSA (Genders and Sexualities Alliance) meetings with student leaders,
- coordinating school-wide or lunchtime awareness activities with student leaders, and
- leading two presentations at their school sites on LGBTQ+ student rights, health/wellness trends, local resources, and best practices.
Liaisons receive stipends for completing the required duties above and demonstrate a commitment to helping their schools be welcoming and supportive of LGBTQ students, and their families.
Funding for the LGBTQ Liaison program is made possible by grants awarded to SFUSD by the CDC Division of Adolescent School Health's HIV Prevention program and CDE's Tobacco Use Prevention & Education program.
