LOS ANGELES -- The Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN) is hosting an online auction to raise money for its programs and services that support LGBT students.

Teaming up with charitybuzz.com, auction participants can bid on a number of packages that include access to exclusive parties, unique experiences, celebrities, travel and more.
