Dealing with discrimination and bigotry in the LGBTQ community

It’s important to remember that discrimination and bigotry against LGBTQ people is not always overt. Sometimes it can be subtle, like making a joke that targets someone’s sexual orientation or gender identity.

There are a few things you can do if you witness discrimination or bigotry against LGBTQ people:

  1. Speak up.

If you see or hear someone say something discriminatory or bigoted against LGBTQ people, speak up. Let the person know that what they’re saying is not okay.

  1. Stand up for others.

If you see someone being treated unfairly or unfairly because of their sexual orientation or gender identity, stand up for them. Be an ally.

  1. Support organizations that help LGBTQ people.

There are many organizations that work to help LGBTQ people. Consider donating your time or money to one of these organizations.
