There is no one way to be an LGBTQ rights advocate. You could be the director of a non-profit organization working to protect incarcerated gender nonconforming individuals or a mother fighting for her trans daughter?s right to be treated like any other kid. You could identify as LGBTQ or be an ally. You could chair multiple initiatives and campaigns or be a new face at an introductory meeting. In the fight for the rights of LGBTQ communities?which are currently at threat by a staggering increase in hate crimes, heightened anti-gay sentiment, and proposed anti-LGBTQ legislation across the country?there is room for all levels of engagement, experience, and skill.
