Allyship is commonly defined as emphasizing social justice, inclusion and equality by members of a certain group or community to advance the interests of an oppressed or marginalized group or community. In other words, we are stronger when we are together.
For the LGBTQ+ community, it is especially important to find allyship in their straight counterparts, so they have the necessary support to live their authentic lives. This panel aims to explore the very concept, power and evolution of allyship and how it can change the lives of so many LGBTQ+ peers around the globe.
Actress and disability activist Samantha Renke, joins our panelists to explore the theme of allyship towards the LGBTQ+ community.
Some of the questions that will be explored at the event include:
- Does the word ally best represent support for the LGBTQ+ community?
- What does it mean today?
- Can allyship be performative?
