Expression Not Suppression (ENS) is a Fresno-based annual conference for LGBTQ youth and straight allies who are dedicated to creating safer schools and building the GSA movement in the Central Valley. ENS is youth-planned and youth-led.
Every year, ENS brings together more than 100 LGBTQ youth activists and straight allies from around the Central Valley who are dedicated to creating safe schools and defeating homophobia and transphobia in the Central Valley.
We encourage high school and middle school students, teachers, school administrators, parents, GSA advisors and organizations working in support of LGBTQ youth, to join us and learn about youth activism, leadership and how to make our Central Valley schools safer for all!
ENS aims to promote a deeper understanding of LGBTQ issues in a fun, yet respectful, environment. All attendees are expected to maintain a respectful attitude towards each other and be sensitive to the issues presented at the conference. By registering online, or at the event, you understand and agree to help make the conference fun, yet respectful, for everyone.
