The whole month of October is national Gay-Straight awareness month. There is the Day Of Silence where everyone is recommended to not talk for a day in support of non-judgement towards homosexuals. Then from October 21 to the 25 is national Ally Week. According to GLSEN is “is a whole week where we can engage in a national dialogue about how everyone in and out of school can work to become better allies to LGBT youth. ”
