How to be an ally on National Coming Out Day and all through the year

On the occasion of National Coming Out Day, here are some ways you can be an ally to those in need.

1. Watch what you are saying and committing on social media. Take time to read, honor and amplify the voices in need.

2. Celebrate the beauty of queer love and existence in all its forms in every way possible.

3. Talk to your children about what it is to be queer and how they can show their support to the community.

4. Do some reading and brush up on your knowledge of the history of the queer community.

5. Donate as much as you can including time and money to LGBTQ organizations to support their work.

6. Get personal and reach out to any queer individual or couple in your surrounding. Help them in every way possible.

7.  Seek out queer artists, including writers, painters, poets and dancers, and extend support to their expression.
