Strong people stand up for themselves, but the strongest people stand up for others.
I do not call myself an ally, because ally is not an identity. What I do know is that I speak up, stand up, volunteer, present and train. I do ally work. I understand that I do not share lived experiences, I don’t expect recognition, I don’t expect thanks for what I do, because this isn’t about me. I understand the importance of changing institutions.
The LGBTQ community cannot achieve equality without support from smart energetic compassionate and dedicated straight accomplices! I know there are lots of barriers that may keep people from getting involved, and that’s why I’m here. Bring me to your campus or institution to give your straight community the tools to become accomplices!
