Do you want to be an LGBTQ+ Ally?
Allyship is a verb and it requires work, both in your mind and your muscles. The good news is that the work you do impacts change in tangible ways. Choosing Allyship is powerful and requires thoughtful reflection and a change in personal paradigms.
An ally is someone who is not a member of an underrepresented group but who takes action to support that group. It’s up to people who hold positions of privilege to be active allies to those with less access, and to take responsibility for making changes that will help others be successful.
You don’t have to know the comprehensive history of a group to be an ally. Recognize that there is a route to allyship that works best for you. Not every Ally will march or be a community organizer, not everyone can commit to donating. Everyone can be an ally.
