What does it mean to be an ally?

This morning when I arrived at work someone had sent me one of the videos below. They are from an Irish campaign called Stand Up! that seeks to raise awareness about the experiences of LGBT youth, including positive images of LGBT young people, addressing homophobia, and being an ally. The campaign is a yearly initiative, with this year’s campaign taking place from April 4-15. While I think the campaign would benefit from more diversity, particularly in terms of race and gender expression, the overall message and images they portray are positive and certainly exemplify what I think it means to be an ally.
