Who are the

Students of Stonewall?

An organized group of diverse high school students and college mentors who lend their voices and skills for positive change in social justice within their community. They build relationships, help communities identify key issues of concern, develop strategies for creating change, and partner with caring adults to create a just environment for all people.

These student leaders are committed to transforming Nashville into an open and affirming community for all citizens, with a focus on those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, or anywhere on the spectrum of identities.

Who can become

a Student of Stonewall?

We are seeking high school and college students residing in or attending school in Nashville or Davidson County. If you have reliable transportation, you may also apply if you live outside Davidson County. We look for students who identify on the LGBT spectrum or those who remain committed to being allies for this population. A passion for social justice and LGBT rights in addition to your own personal experiences within your school, your family, and your community are the building blocks for this commitment. We ask that high school student applicants are at least rising sophomores and that college mentor applicants are at least second-year college students.
