USC Allies

 

Student3Allies are people of the dominant or majority group who work to end oppression in their private and professional lives through support of, and as an advocate for the oppressed population.  Allies are straight identified individuals who are supportive advocates for the LGBT Community through their activism, involvement or their nature to speak out against oppression and inequality.

Allies can help LGBT people by advocating that LGBT people are entitled to the same rights as any other person regardless of their sexual or gender identity.  If you are an Ally, then please learn how you can get involved on campus and remember that all LGBT events on campus are open to everyone including our Allies.
