Allies
Allies are persons who are supportive of the LGBTQQIP2SAA persons in their life as well as the broader LGBTQQIP2SAA community.
How you can be an ally:
Be open-minded. Be a listener. Be willing to talk.
Be inclusive and invite LGBTQQIP2SAA friends to spend time with your friends and family.
Don't make the assumption that your friends and co-workers are not lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, pansexual, two spirit, or asexual. Someone close to you could be looking for support in their coming-out process. Not making assumptions will help to give them the space they need to turn to you for support and affirmation.
Anti-LGBTQQIP2SAA comments and jokes are hurtful and they are harmful. Make it clear to your friends, family, and co-workers that you find them offensive.
Confront your own prejudices and biases even as you find
it uncomfortable to do so.
Defend your LGBTQQIP2SAA friends against discrimination realizing that all persons regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation deserve to be treated
with dignity and respect.
