Straight for Equality invites you to join the growing number of PFLAG Chapters across the country who are using the Straight for Equality project to bring the message of PFLAG to new audiences in their communities. We all know people in our lives that support equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people but don’t know how to express their support or just don’t have enough information. Through the Straight for Equality Project PFLAG members have the ability to break down the barriers that keep people from getting involved in LGBT issues and to support them as they learn more.
We have some great tools to help you learn more about the Straight for Equality project is, how you can use it in your chapter, and much more. Working with new and potential allies often requires some self-examination for PFLAG members and we’re here to help. We’ll help you consider how the ways you approach support, education and advocacy, the language you use, and your expectations of new allies can really make a difference in engaging new people in the fight for equality. Our experience and research has taught us some things to avoid when working with straight allies that will help you to effectively invite, educate, and engage them in new and exciting ways.
PFLAGers are the original allies, and now you’re leading the way in creating a new generation of allies. We’re glad that you’re here to be part of the effort. We couldn’t do it without you.
