LGBTQIA+ and queer individuals are often asked by allies: “How can I be a good ally to the community?” In this session, three UH professionals will share their thoughts regarding what effective allyship can entail, as well as how intersections with race and indigeneity can add important nuances to what it means to be an ally.
Panelists: Scott Sutherland Syreeta Washington Kaleikūkamakani Ruiz
In recognition of Hawaiian History Month in September and Filipino History Month and LGBT History Month in October, QUEERIFY features presenters and panelists from both the UH System as well as professionals from the community.

QUEERIFY is a UH-based public service project designed to amplify queer voices, mobilize queer folks to speak our truths, and connect queer folks and allies with information and one another for a stronger, healthier community.
