Good Community: Being an Ally and Uplifting the LGBTQIA+ Community
As we continue talking about what it means to build a Good Community, we want to take a moment to share the ways we can be good allies to our friends in the LGBTQIA+ community year-round. Now more than ever, it is important that we unite in support for justice and equality to combat the discrimination taking place before our eyes globally.
At FarBridge, we are committed to making a safe, welcoming environment for all humans we work and come into contact with. You can see this commitment in our company values, our code of conduct, and more. We take this very seriously and strive to keep this community welcoming and safe for everyone as we grow our game studio, team, and online community.
We hope that you’ll join us in supporting the following organizations and learning more about their work to protect, advocate, and uplift the LGBTQIA+ community throughout the year:
Gay Gaming Professionals
Gay Gaming Professionals is a leading organization of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender game industry professionals and enthusiasts from around the world.
Out Youth serves Central Texas LGBTQIA+ (lesbian/gay/bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning, intersex, and asexual) youth and their allies with programs and services to ensure these promising young people develop into happy, healthy, successful adults.
Elevated Access recognizes that not all people have access to the healthcare they need due to stigma in their community. They believe that everyone deserves access to healthcare such as abortion and gender-affirming care. The organization provides free transportation to get people where they can get the care they need to live their best life.
The National Center for Transgender Equality advocates to change policies and society to increase understanding and acceptance of transgender people. In the nation’s capital and throughout the country, NCTE works to replace disrespect, discrimination, and violence with empathy, opportunity, and justice.
The Trevor Project is the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ young people.
As we continue our series on Good Community, we’ll be highlighting even more organizations we think everyone should get to know in the coming months. Let us know if there are any groups you want to see us work with, learn more about, or shout out in future posts!
