HRC and PFLAG National Launch Revamped Resource for Coming Out as a Straight Supporter
October 9, 2012 by Paul Guequierre
With National Coming Out Day just two days away, the HRC Foundation and PFLAG National have teamed up to release a comprehensive update of Coming Out as a Straight Supporter.
The resource is intended to be a welcoming guide for straight supporters to build bridges of understanding when someone they know comes out to them. The guide answers initial questions, and shares facts, strategies, and ways to show your support of LGBT equality.
On Saturday, HRC presented Academy Award-winning actress Sally Field with the Ally for Equality Award at the 16th annual HRC National Dinner. Watch her moving speech, which focused on her role of being the proud mother of a gay son.
