Educate Yourself

Understanding the history and struggles of the LGBTQ+ community is crucial to being a supportive ally. Take the time to educate yourself about the Stonewall Riots, the AIDS epidemic, and other significant events that have shaped LGBTQ+ history. Read books, watch documentaries, and listen to personal stories to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by the community.

Advocate for LGBTQ+ Rights

Pride Month is a time to raise awareness about the ongoing fight for LGBTQ+ rights. Get involved in advocacy efforts by supporting organizations that champion LGBTQ+ rights, signing petitions, and contacting lawmakers to advocate for inclusive policies. By using your voice to support legislative change, you can help create a more equitable society for all.

Support LGBTQ+ Businesses and Organizations

Show your support for the LGBTQ+ community by patronizing businesses owned and operated by LGBTQ+ individuals. Attend events hosted by LGBTQ+ organizations and donate to causes that provide essential services to LGBTQ+ individuals, such as health care, housing assistance, and mental health support.
