The Ultimate Goal: Create Acts of Allyhood

An ALLY is someone who
challenges
the misinformation and mistreatment caused by heterosexism and homophobia.

An ally is an individual who works to end oppression personally and professionally through
support
and
advocacy
of an oppressed population.

Although the term “Ally” primarily refers to heterosexuals, it is important for us all to remember that LGBTQ individuals also need to be allies to each other by actively supporting the needs of
each community
.

Top 10 Things to Unlearn About LGB(Q) folks
1. You can't spot a gay person by the way
they dress or act.
4. Identifying as LGBQ is not a mental illness or a psychiatric condition.
2. HIV/AIDS isn't an LGB disease
5. Lesbians do not simply need the "right" man, nor do gay men need the
"right" woman to set themselves straight.
3. There's no brainwashing involved.
6. Bisexuals are NOT simply looking for the "best of both worlds."
10. Things are NOT equal for LGBQ folks in the United States, even though it
is getting better.
7. LGBQ people are not unhealthy/unfit parents.
8. There is still no federal legislation that protects LGB individuals from
workplace discrimination solely based on their sexual orientation
9. Identifying as LGB is not just a phase one goes through.
If we do not act now, homosexuals will own America! If you and I do not speak up now,
this homosexual steamroller will literally crush all decent men, women, and children who get in its way
... and our nation will pay a terrible price.
