EVENT: Expression Not Suppression THIS SATURDAY

Gay Central Valley and the Fresno LGBT Community Center will be at this Saturday’s Expression Not Suppression…we hope to see you there…

Expression Not Suppression (ENS) is a Fresno-based annual conference for LGBTQ youth and straight allies who are dedicated to creating safer schools and building the GSA movement in the Central Valley. ENS is youth-planned and youth-led.

ENS aims to promote a deeper understanding of LGBTQ issues in a fun, yet respectful, environment. All attendees are expected to maintain a respectful attitude towards each other and be sensitive to the issues presented at the conference. By registering online, or at the event, you understand and agree to help make the conference fun, yet respectful, for everyone.

Are you a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning or straight ally youth? Want more tools to make YOUR school safer and defeat bullying?
