LGBTQ Ally March
The LGBTQ Ally March is the chance for all of us to step forward proudly in support of our gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender friends, daughters, fathers, sisters, brothers, next door neighbors, teachers—anyone in our community who is LGBTQ. Straight Allies are a corner-stone of the LGBTQ Community. Additionally, the alliance is strengthened by members of the LGBTQ community supporting each other-- lesbians standing up for transgender folk standing up for their gay brothers. On this day, we celebrate allies and their dedication to making our schools, communities, nation, and world safer and more accepting of diversity.
Would you like to lead the 2015 LGBTQ Ally March?
Here is how:
- Contact members of your organization, team, floor, sorority, fraternity, friends, major or any other group of people you associate with at UW Oshkosh and create a team of 10-15 people.
- If your organization has more than 15 people, encourage others to create groups. Organizations are welcome to have as many groups as they want. If your organization has less than 10 members ask friends and family members to join you for the march.
- Once you have your team, email us with your group name for the event.
- When your team of at least 10 people arrives at the Ally March check in and put your team name in the drawing. We will draw a name at the end of the rally and announce the team that will then immediately lead the march.
We will also throw a pizza party to celebrate after the march and give away free T-shirts to the first teams at the rally.
