Jeremy’s starting a new project called “The Allies Project” that helps gay folks see that there are tons of straight people who love and support LGBT folks.
Basically, he’s asking LGBT people to share a story about how a straight ally has helped make their journey easier. The idea is that “When you share a story about how a straight person has made a difference in your life, your ally becomes our ally.” Pretty brilliant, right?!
When LGBT youth “come out,” they already know that the gay community will love and support them. Duh. What they don’t always know is that there are TONS of open minded, loving, compassionate, straight people who will support them as well.
These kids need to know that not all straight people are against them!
If you’re LGBT, share a story with The Allies Project about how a straight person has made a difference in your life and make your ally our ally.
If you’re one of our straight allies, tell a story about why you love and support the LGBT community.
Help LGBT youth know that they’re not as isolated from the straight world as they sometimes feel. Support The Allies Project!
