The LGBTQ+ community has witnessed many milestones; however, there is still a long way to go. FairyTales Presentation Society provides a safe environment for queer individuals and allies to freely express themselves.
Here are 10 ways you can stand up for the LGBTQ+ community in 2018:
Support local organizations by dedicating your time to a queer-focused program. FairyTales has an excellent volunteer program with many available positions.
Most LGBTQ+ focused organizations are in dire need of funding. You can help inform the public about inclusion by making a donation today!
Attend an LGBTQ+ Event
Calgary has events of all kinds: Pride Parades, seminars, poetry readings, Coming Out Monologues, rallies, and fun activities. You’re sure to find one that interests you!
LGBTQ+ individuals and allies alike can brush up on queer culture and find resources about queer rights and justice.
Read About Local LGBTQ+ Issues
The easiest way to learn about the local LGBTQ+ community is to stay on top of stories in the local newspapers.
Be mindful of your daily routine. Make everyone feel welcome regardless of sexuality or gender.
