Parents of LGBTQIA+ youth are under attack.
LGBTQIA+ teachers and teachers of LGBTQIA+ youth are under attack.
LGBTQIA+ athletes are under attack.
Parents and kids and teachers and athletes and other LGBTQIA+ folx…

who are scared and suffering (often in silence)
who know that their livelihood-- and their very lives-- are at risk.
And we see you.
The allies who care
The ones who are paying attention
The entrepreneurs who are willing to learn and step into proactive allyship for the LGBTQIA+ community

Your queer clients deserve to be understood.
The LGBTQIA+ community deserves not only to be accepted, but to be fully embraced for all that we are.
Your allyship matters to us.
How you show up, speak up, and hold space matters.
True Allyship cannot be achieved in 90 minutes.
This conversation is meant to be the beginning, the first step, in an ever-evolving and beautiful journey. Whether you're brand new to Allyship, or you've been fighting for our community since the beginning, Allyship must evolve through time.
Our hope is that in the midst of so much nuance, each of our individual experiences, and all the feelings that come up, everyone can get something out of this time together.
Together, we will explore the reality of queer history. — because the LGBTQIA+ community has always been here.
We will learn about the context in which many LGBTQIA+ folks still experience the world, and we will talk about mental health, trauma, and the unique challenges that the LGBTQIA+ community faces to this day.
We’ll create a basic understanding of different identities and orientations, covering relevant terminology. This information is not for you to memorize, but for you to familiarize yourself with and open your eyes to other perfectly valid and beautiful ways of being in the world.
We'll talk about why true Allyship is so important and discuss the ways in which it can actually save lives.
We don't know everything, but we've experienced firsthand how important allyship has been in our lives and the lives of our loved ones.
We, too, are committed allies who are dedicated to keep listening and learning from others in our community who have had different experiences... and our invitation is just this: come talk. Let's learn and grow together so that our next generation of queer kids have more people in their corner.
