Questions for Discussion:

  1. In your opinion, should straight people attend LGBTQ Pride festivities? Why or why not?
     
  2. As an ally, how can you go about giving up and / or creating space for those whose voices are often marginalized in your community?
     
  3. Have you heard of organizations like the Reclaim Pride Coalition or No Justice No Pride? If so, what can you share about their work and mission? If not, what could you do to learn more?
