With all of its pros and cons, technology is one of the most important aspects of modern life, especially when we’re all still spending our time at home. Here are a few ways that you can use technology to be a better LGBTQ+ advocate alongside PFLAG National.
Learn: Follow PFLAG National on social media to stay on top of the news and be ready for action. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and TikTok. You can also follow the Straight for Equality program on Facebook and Twitter.
Watch: Stream LGBTQ+ inclusive shows, movies, and podcasts. By giving your time and attention to LGBTQ+ inclusive work, you are reminding content creators that LGBTQ+ people and stories matter. Then be sure to share the ones that made an impact on you with others, especially ones elevate LGBTQ+ creators.
Share: Post information about LGBTQ+ news and policies on social media. You can also direct folks to accurate, helpful information so that they can meet unfounded fears with facts. Learning is vital to be up-to-date and understanding, and you have the power to educate your friends, loved ones, and followers. Start by attending our monthly PFLAG Academy Online sessions, and bookmark some favorite trusted new sites for daily updates!
