World Pride - Spotlight on Bright's LGBTQ+ family

last updated 01 July 2019

title

Millions of people came together in celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots as New York hosted World Pride this weekend. In many parts of the world, and even here on American soil, we are still working on cultivating greater acceptance, understanding, and equal rights. Books and storytelling are one of our greatest tools to do this. As such, we couldn’t help but place a spotlight on Bright’s own LGBTQ+ family members who continue to create artwork that embraces all the colors of the rainbow!

10 Ways to be an Ally by GLAAD

  1. Be a listener.

  2. Be open-minded.

  3. Be willing to talk.

  4. Be inclusive and invite LGBT friends to hang out with your friends & family.

  5. Don’t assume that all your friends and co-workers are straight. Someone close to you could be looking for support in their coming-out process. Not making assumptions will give them the space they need.

  6. Anti-LGBT comments and jokes are harmful. Let your friends, family and co-workers know that you find them offensive.

  7. Confront your own prejudices and bias, even if it is uncomfortable to do so.

  8. Defend your LGBT friends against discrimination.

  9. Believe that all people, regardless of gender identity and sexual orientation, should be treated with dignity and respect.

  10. If you see LGBT people being misrepresented in the media, contact us at glaad.org
