Allies are some of the most effective and powerful voices in helping to reduce the stigma and discrimination against LGBT people and helping them to achieve legal equality and promoting messages of the importance of fairness, acceptance, and mutual respect.
ALLY GUIDES AVAILABLE FROM THE MOVEMENT ADVANCEMENT PROJECT
These guides for LGBT allies were developed by the Movement Advancement Project (http://lgbtmap) with the collaboration of a number of other organizations that are specific to the topic. Allies may find them helpful in terms of both understanding the issues as well as specific language that can be used when discussing LGBT issues with others. You may click on each topic or title. Here’s the link to the page that provides a selection of the guides that are available: http://www.lgbtmap.org/talking-about-lgbt-issues-series
