Why do you want to be a straight ally?
To support LGBT+ colleagues and students should they need my help, not just because it’s the right thing to do but I have family and friends in the LGBT+ community; I’d hope people would help and support them too if they needed it.
Why would straight people be involved in LGBT+ issues?
Discrimination against people’s sexuality or gender identity is unacceptable and we should do everything we can to combat intolerance where we find it; supporting the LGBT+ community also helps create a fairer and safer society for everyone.
What can straight allies do to make the University of Kent a better place for being an LGBT+ staff member?
Be available to help, call out bad practices and support current LGBT+ causes.
