Pride Month 2021: Be an Ally

Share

Is there someone in your life who is a part of the LGBTQA+ community? Probably. The best way to support someone in the LGBTQA+ community is to be a friend or an ally. A few years ago, Taylor Swift released a music video for her song “You Need to Calm Down” featuring rainbow colored cakes, gay tea parties, and other stereotypical queer images. The LGTBQA+ community was furious because she did not mention people’s actual lives but instead used the images for her own profit.

This behavior is more objectifying than comforting for the LGBTQA+ community. Pride month is about celebrating “radical queer liberation” and being yourself. It challenges old social prejudices against sexual orientation and embraces individuality.

Just like everyone knows someone who is left-handed, everyone knows someone who is a part of the LGBTQA+ community. It is important to be a friend and support the community by treating them equally. LGTBQA+ deserve to have equal opportunities and should not feel judged for their sexual preferences. Whether it is in the workplace, in social outings, or even on social media.

Pride month is more than rainbow and glitter block party type parades on the streets of New York City. It is about being there for the LGTBQA+ people you know by showing your support. Ways to support are donating to LGTBQA+ organizations, educating yourself, learn the correct language, and listen to the community.

“Anyone, regardless of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity, can support lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people. Allies play a huge role in fighting for equal rights, equal opportunities, and equal treatment for members of the LGBTQ+ community. Check in throughout the week for tips and resources on how to be a strong Ally in your community.
