QUEER: An umbrella term sometimes used by LGBTQI people to refer to the entire LGBTQI community.


THE OUTBOARD is a biweekly e-newsletter of local LGBTQ events and resources. We aim to build an inter-generational and all inclusive community by connecting queer + bi + gay + trans + lesbian folks and friends around the Seacoast and beyond.

At GLSEN, we want every student, in every school, to be valued and treated with respect, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. We believe that all students deserve a safe and affirming school environment where they can learn and grow.

We accomplish our goals by working in hallways across the country -- from Congress and the Department of Education to schools and district offices in your community -- to improve school climate and champion LGBT issues in K-12 education. 

  • We conduct extensive and original research to inform our evidence-based solutions for K-12 education.
  • We author developmentally appropriate resources for educators to use throughout their school community.
  • We partner with decision makers to ensure that comprehensive and inclusive safe schools policies are considered, passed and implemented.
  • We partner with dozens of national education organizations to leverage our shared expertise into creating great schools and better opportunities for every student. 
  • We empower students to affect change by supporting student-led efforts to positively impact their own schools and local communities.

Every day GLSEN works to ensure that LGBTQ students are able to learn and grow in a school environment free from bullying and harassment. Together, we can transform our nation’s K-12 schools into the safe and affirming environment all youth deserve. 

Our purpose is to research, document & preserve the history of gay lesbian, bisexual & transgender people on the Seacoast of NH with emphasis on Portsmouth
