Around the Day of Silence, when students spend the day not speaking to bring awareness to the silence and isolation caused by anti-LGBT bullying, LGBT Network hosts “Night of Noise” events at all our LGBT Centers. These events are an opportunity for youth to break the silence, make some noise, and engage in fun and empowering activities.
