This is a resource page for anyone seeking to learn about LGBT+ issues and for those who seek to better educate themselves regarding these issues in order to be better Allies for the LGBT+ communities.

What does it mean to be an Ally?
An Ally is a person of one social identity group who stands up in support of members of another group; often times these are marginalized groups that are being discriminated against or are being treated in an unjust way.

Why are Allies important?
Allies of any marginalized group have the opportunity to lend their support and increase visibility for these groups—in this case, the LGBT+ communities. Being an Ally can be difficult and can require a fair amount of education on the part of the Ally. Never be afraid to ask open and honest questions, and never hesitate to speak up if you identify as an Ally.
