2nd annual GSA Awards Night to honor local youth in San Diego

SAN DIEGO -- GLSEN San Diego will host its second annual GSA Awards Night on Friday, May 31 from 6-9 pm at The San Diego LGBT Community Center.

The evening celebration will include dinner, entertainment, prizes, and awards for GSA members. Guests speakers include Kevin Beiser, openly-gay member of the San Diego Unified School District board of trustees, and Kristy Salazar, host of "Out of the Closet" radio.

All GSA organizations that attend the event and are represented by 3-5 students will receive a $150 GLSEN San Diego grant for its own programs, and $50 "Bonus GLSEN Bucks" for those clubs accompanied by their advisor(s).
