Showing yourself as an ally to the LGBTQIA+ community is essential when hate crimes related to gender and sexual orientation continue to be a common occurrence in every country around the world. Love knows nothing of gender, sexuality, or identity and being an ally means standing up for equality. This is about more than just voting for policies that get a lot of attention, like legalizing same-sex marriage. It also means helping to protect the trans community, fighting for rights at work and those who still face discrimination in their everyday lives.
The term LGBTQIA+ encompasses a whole spectrum of sexualities, genders, and other such identifiers. Using the wrong pronouns or terminology once may be an accident. However, repeatedly ignoring someone’s preferred pronouns highlights a continued phobia or prejudice against the trans and non-binary community. One study found 32% of the trans people polled stated that misgendering further perpetuates feelings of stigmatization. (APA Psycnet)
