Taking a stance for diversity and inclusion is not just the right thing to do – it’s good for business. And while society has made some major progress over the years in accepting and promoting the rights of Queer individuals, anti-gay legislation and movements continue to hinder those in the LGBTQ+ community.

This is why it’s more important than ever to show support and use your voice for good. Whether you know someone personally who identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ) and even if you’re looking for ways to help, I’ve listed 10 simple ideas below to consider.

 10 Ways To Support The LGBTQ+ Community:

  1. Learn more about becoming a Straight Ally
  2. Display a symbol of Pride on your website or social media page 
  3. Volunteer to help support a social cause for the LGBTQ+ community  
  4. Donate to a Queer-owned business or organization 
  5. Encourage healthy conversations about LGBTQ+ issues 
  6. Read a Gay-friendly book or watch a documentary 
  7. Attend or sponsor a LGBT event in your area 
  8. Celebrate Pride Month 
  9. Speak out against hate & prejudice in your community
  10.  Be kind and inclusive
