After the Trevor Project, GLSEN was honoured by the White House.

GLSEN, Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, is an organization which fight against bullying, violence and stigma directed at lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders in the schools and contribute to prevent the suicide suicide among at-risk youth making it possible to have safety schools.

"This White House honor recognizes the amazing work that the staff, volunteers and student leaders of GLSEN have done for more than two decades to alert the nation to the ways that anti-LGBT bias in our schools is a serious barrier to both educational excellence and individual well-being," GLSEN Executive Director Eliza Byard said.

"I and my colleagues are dedicated to identifying and implementing solutions to the problem that work for schools and for students, instilling hope and staving off despair. It is so gratifying to gain this kind of recognition for our efforts to create better, safer schools for all."
