Cora Love: Being an Ally

In this video, Cora Love discusses was non-trans people can show respect and be inclusive toward the transgender community.

What is an ally? Allies are people who recognize the unearned privilege they receive from society’s patterns of injustice and take responsibility for changing these patterns. Allies include men who work to end sexism, white people who work to end racism, heterosexual people who work to end heterosexism, able-bodied people who work to end ableism, and so on. For this video, an ally means a non-trans person who works toward trans visibility and ending transphobia, which causes violence and a loss of rights for many.
