What is an LGBTQ Ally?

An LGBTQ Ally is an individual with the awareness, knowledge, and skills to confront injustice and advocate for equality, while supporting all persons, regardless of perceived or actual sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression, who are experiencing discrimination.

LGBTQ Allies are identified on campus by buttons, signs, and t-shirts that carry the offical LGBTQ Ally logo. If you see this logo, the person displaying it has gone through the official three hour training and is a resource for the campus community.
