West High GSA v. Manchester School District

Victory

Overview

Faced with a lawsuit by GLAD and its NH co-counsel, the Manchester School District directed West High’s principal to recognize a student initiated Gay/Straight Alliance.  The students had sought recognition from the school for a noncurriculum-related club that would focus on creating support and safe spaces for GLBT and questioning youth, but were told that they had to obtain approval from the School Board, a requirement not imposed on any other students wishing to form a club.  The result ensures that the GSA will be afforded the exact same treatment as all other clubs at the high school.
