Virtual GSA is a non-profit organization initiated for youth by youth that provides support in a virtual setting that

positively impacts the health and wellness of LGBTQ+ students nationally. We are especially supportive of

students who have not been permitted to organize within their school settings.

OBJECTIVES

  • Mobilizing youth ambassadors nationally who attend schools where they cannot/do not have a Gay Straight Alliance.

  • Offer the latest news on student efforts to create Gay Straight Alliances and similar organizations.

  • Providing resources on organizations that support LGBTQ+ youth.

FOUNDER

Ethan Grey Scott

Ethan Grey Scott is currently a sophomore at Northeastern University in Boston, MA. He's from Charlotte, North Carolina. Through his academic journey, Ethan has had an emotional and heartfelt passion for establishing a Gay Straight Alliance club within his school. With the rise of Covid-19 at our doorsteps, he felt pulled to create a virtual space where LGBTQ+ youth could safely connect and support one another. Though similar adult led platforms exist, Ethan thought it was important to create a platform for youth, by youth. His goals include creating a platform where youth in non-supportive educational environments and those who reside in rural areas who lack local resources can find a virtual community. Help him denounce discrimination and the injustice towards LGBTQ+ youth everywhere.   

When he’s not advocating….

Ethan is a proud recipient of the coveted BSA, Eagle Scout Award.  He is a member of the National Honor Society, French National Honor Society, and the Rho Kappa Social Studies National Honor Society. In addition to doing service in his local community, he finds great joy in providing much needed service to under-resourced rural communities which have included the Village Community Center in Navua River, Fiji, Bushveld Mission Children’s Orphanage in Thabazimi, South Africa, and El Bruno Village in the Costa Rican rainforest. ​
