To Our Allies – Thank You

In commemoration for IDAHOT (International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia) as someone who identifies as part of the LGBTQ+ spectrum (not everyone agrees that asexuality is a part of it, but I do), I want to say one thing…

THANK YOU.

Thank you to the parents, siblings and other family members who accept their LGBTQ+ family members.

Thank you to all of those on social media who have been vocal in sharing support for LGBTQ+ rights

Thank you to all the teachers and other staff who are dedicated to making schools a safe space for LGBTQ+ students and their families. Thank you for being a soft place to fall when students feel the need to talk honestly about their feelings. Thank you for not judging them.

Thank you to straight allies who have had friends come out and not let them feel like they need to hide.

Thank you to those dedicated to making faith communities safer places for LGBTQ+ people.

Thank you to those who are dedicated to improving the mental health of LGBTQ+ people
