The Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network aka GLSEN is teaming up with Elle magazine to bring their anti-bullying message to New York Fashion Week.
The GLSEN Lounge will be open on Feb 12-13 and is designed to raise awareness for GLSEN's upcoming National Day of Silence taking place on April 20, 2012. Students across the country will take a vow of silence to call attention to the silencing effect of anti-LGBT bullying and harassment in schools.
Fashion designers participating in Fashion Week have come together to sketch their interpretation of GLSEN's Day of Silence and will be on display for public viewing at the GLSEN Fashion lounge.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to sketch a message or design in support of the national student event.
What an amazing event and powerful message!
