We are Listening – Sparking Public Conversation on GSAswas a public event held in the rehearsal hall of the Winspear Theatre in Edmonton on January 31, 2015.

The event was held in response to the introduction of Bill 10, which would allow Alberta school boards to reject student requests to create peer-support groups known as gay-straight alliances (GSAs).

The event was open to the general public as an opportunity to hear firsthand from individuals as they share their stories around their experiences with or without GSAs in schools.   

This Edmonton Social Planning Council document is a summary of what was said by youth, parents, educators and concerned citizens.
