Monday marks the beginning of Ally Week, the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network’s (GLSEN) national week of action to identify new allies to LGBT youth, and a chance for us all to reflect on our own role in the movement for equality. In recognition of this week-long campaign, Groundspark is proud to partner with GLSEN to offer free streaming of our award-winning documentary, Straightlaced—How Gender’s Got Us All Tied Up, from October 13th through the 17th!

During Ally Week, participants across the country will consider what they can do to become an even better ally to another person, or group of people. Straightlaced, which explores the pressures that ALL teens face when it comes to dealing with gender norms and sexuality, is the perfect tool for sparking dialogue and community action around these issues.

twitter Starting Monday, join us in using #BetterAllies and #AllyWeek on Twitter to spread the word about the free stream and to share how you’re committing to allyship!

GLSEN’s Ally Week pushes us to reflect on how we can all use our privilege to move the safe schools movement forward, and a reminder that being an ally to LGBT youth isn’t just something to be proud of, but a lifelong responsibility to speak up more, intervene more, and demand equality for all.
