STRAIGHT ALLY

  • An ally is a hetrosexual and cisgender person who supports equal civil rights, gender equality, and LGBTQIA+ social movements, challenging homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia.
  • An ally acknowledges that LGBTQIA+ people face discrimination and thus are socially disadvantaged.
  • They aim to use their position and privilege as heterosexual and cisgender individuals in a society focused on cisnormativity and hetronormativity to counter discrimination against LGBTQIA+ people.
