As an ally, I agree to:

  • Be an open-minded listener
  • Confront my own prejudices by doing my own research and asking educated questions
  • Recognize my privilege and use it for good
  • Get comfortable with being uncomfortable
  • Speak up for the underrepresented who are not present in the conversation, and amplify present voices not being equally heard
  • Follow the lead of my 2LGBTQIA+ peers by supporting but not overshadowing
  • Work to develop an understanding of 2LGBTQIA+ community member issues and commit to continued personal growth
  • Have a good understanding of sexual orientation, gender identity, an gender expression; and am comfortable with my own
  • Be aware that the coming out process is not a one-time event and provide continued support
  • Respect privacy – refrain from disclosing names or identifying details of a person when discussing a situation
  • Consult the Rainbow Center staff when I have questions or would like feedback about how to support or advise a 2LGBTQIA+ community member
