Coming Out Week Ally Support List 2013
year, October 11th is celebrated as National Coming Out Day. The day was
created to advocate for a safer world for members of the lesbian, gay,
bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQQIA)
community to live truthfully and openly – and also as a way for allies or
supporters of the community to step up and speak out. An ally is a person who
confronts heterosexism, heterosexual privilege, sexism, and homophobia in
themselves and others out of self-interest and a concern for the well-being of
observance of this day, the Office of LGBTQ Services and the Dickinsonian have
partnered to list the names of supporters of the LGBTQQIA and ally community at
Dickinson. The Ally Support List is a tradition at several colleges and
universities around the country that provides a way of increasing visibility
and support for the LGBTQQIA community. Dickinson's 2nd Annual Ally
Support List is expected to be published on October 10th in the Dickinsonian.
text of the pledge appearing in the Dickinsonian will read as follows:
the undersigned students, faculty, staff, alumni, organizations, families, and
local community members, are all part of the Dickinson College community. We
are proud lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex,
asexual, and allied people who make this community strong. We support LGBTQQIA
individuals by advocating for equal rights, full inclusion, and a safe climate.
In commitment to inclusive excellence, we are cultivating an environment where
diversity is appreciated and respected. We come together as a community to
recognize National Coming Out Day 2013."
