Becoming an LGBT+ ally

Malta and Germany have become the latest European countries to introduce marriage equality, joining more than a dozen others on the continent. At the same time, dozens of people have been arrested, imprisoned and fined in Azerbaijan and Chechnya (Russia) for ‘looking gay’. More and more young Europeans are ready to fight for LGBT+ rights, but the battle continues to be uphill. As young people increasingly call themselves allies of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, many still do or say things that, however unknowingly, hurt the very people they mean to help. Call yourself an LGBT ally? Join us to discover how to actually be one.
