Want to Be an Ally of the LGBTQ+ Community?

You may be looking to go beyond "acceptance" and become an ally for this community. We provide concrete ways to help support LGBTQ+ people.

Our resources will provide suggestions on how to be more inclusive of LGBTQ+ people.

Be an ally today:

  • Keep rainbows, equality symbols, and other inclusive artwork in your office, classroom, residence hall, etc.
  • Use inclusive language; stop hateful language.
  • Believe, believe, believe.
  • Don't force someone to educate you. Use your resources.
  • Be explicit about your allyship where you can (syllabus, policies, bios, marketing, etc.)
