In this session, we will present preliminary findings of a study from the University of Alberta and MacEwan University on Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) clubs, and the well-being of students in high school. The research includes survey responses from students in grades 7-12 from schools in both Edmonton Public and Catholic Schools. Our findings reveal students’ experiences of school and family relationships, bullying, self-expression, self-determination, and involvement with their school’s GSA.
