Identifying who identifies
by Molly Crews
Some would argue that it shouldn’t be unusual for an LGBT+ person to identify as an ally and wear the pin. They’re wrong, though. Speaking as a member of the LGBT+ community, I find that being able to identify members of the majority who support LGBT+ people increases my sense of safety. It’s comforting to know that you don’t have to be a member of the community to think that the rights of those in it are worth protecting.
