The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GSLEN) started a great initiative for supportive Allies called, "Think Before You Speak." It encourages Allies to take a pledge against homophobic language and remarks and to encourage them to speak out against these homophobic actions. Share this message with students, staff, faculty, friends, and colleagues and speak out against homophobia.
Think Before You Speak
Say Something Original and pledge to be an ally to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students. In becoming an ally, you promise not to use homophobic words and phrases – such as “that’s so gay” – and to educate others when you hear them being used. Once you’ve taken the pledge, invite your friends to do the same! To take the pledge, click here.
