As a straight ally I will…
I’ll come out as an ally and tell my family, friends, and colleagues know that I support equality for LGBT people while working through barriers to become more active.
Whether I am responding to an anti-LGBT joke or remark, starting a new conversation about LGBT issues, or correcting misinformation I will choose to speak up for equality.
I’ll use Straight for Equality resources to find ways (big and small!) to demonstrate my support for the LGBT community and join in helping move equality forward.
