Each year, GSE's Equality Walk is one of our biggest sources of support. That support keeps us strong and ensures we are able to fight for every member of the LGBT community.  This year’s theme, “Taking Steps to Protect our Future,” reflects an emphasis on strengthening our recent wins in anti-bullying and marriage equality, while continuing to push for protections for LGBT youth, seniors and the transgender community.
