GLADD says, “LGBTQ people are our mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, and cousins. This is a fact and it isn’t going away. You have the opportunity to be an ally and a friend at home, school, church, and work. A straight ally can merely be someone who is supportive and accepts the LGBTQ person, or a straight ally can be someone who personally advocates for equal rights and fair treatment. Allies are some of the most effective and powerful voices of the LGBTQ movement. Not only do allies help people in the coming out process, they also help others understand the importance of equality, fairness, acceptance, and mutual respect.”

We will be boosting our outreach efforts thanks to generous support from the QReach Project.PFUND logo

In February, the PFund Foundation announced the recipients of grants for outreach assessment in LGBTQ communities across the five-state region of North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa. Dakota OutRight was one of 16 Midwestern LGBTQ organizations to receive $5,000 in direct funding and additional support to survey the assets, needs, and leadership of LGBTQ communities in our region.
