Last Friday was GLSEN's Day of Silence, when thousands of students across the country pledged to remain silent for the day to symbolize the silencing effect of anti-LGBT bullying and harassment. Alongside these students, supporters took to social media to champion the cause.
Although some state legislatures across the country are working to limit the rights of LGBT students, especially transgender students, there are countless people who care about improving school climates, and we want to make sure all LGBT youth know that so many people have their back. Here are just five of these people.

We all have a right to learn in safety. I’m proud to stand with LGBTQ2 youth on the #DayofSilence to fight bullying in schools.
