In trying times visible, vocal, and active allyship is more significant than ever. PFLAG parents and allies, in communities nationwide, have the power to encourage LGBTQ inclusion and to model the supportive and welcoming behavior we hope to see in others. But sometimes even the most dedicated ally can run in to situations where they’re not sure how to react – or whether a reaction is even warranted. Straight for Equality is here to help.

In this updated session, you’ll:

  • Review Straight for Equality’s ally spectrum, the journey that many new allies take, and understand the ways in which the advanced allies’ journey looks different. 
  • Learn about strategies for avoiding conflict, creating conversations in your community about LGBTQ equality, and moving away from those dreaded dead-end debates
  • What would you do? 

    Participate in a highly interactive discussion putting what you’ve learned to work by sharing how you’d navigate some common (but tough) scenarios allies face. 

    We’ll give the situation, you’ll give the advice!

  • Get access to Straight for Equality resources and learn about where we’re headed in 2019!
