    Queer Allyship Lexicon The AN INTERSECTIONAL LGBTQ+ GLOSSARY OF TERMS Our glossary of terms: ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ AAVE AAVE is a way of speaking typically seen in African American and Black Canadian Communities. AAVE may be considered a dialect, ethnolect or sociolect. While it is clear that there is a strong historical relationship between AAVE and earlier Southern U.S. dialects, the origins of AAVE are still a matter of debate. (See: Black and Blaq/Blaqueer) ADHD Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurological disorder that impacts the parts of the brain that help us plan, focus on, and execute tasks. ADHD symptoms vary by sub-type — inattentive, hyperactive, or combined — and are often more difficult to diagnose in girls and adults. ​ AFAB / AMAB Acronyms for: Assigned Female at Birth Assigned Male at Birth ​ AIDS AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) is the name used to describe a number of potentially life-threatening infections and illnesses that happen when your immune system has been severely damaged by the HIV virus. During the AIDS crisis in the 1980s, primarily gay men were persecuted in connection with the illness, as it was perceived that only gay men could contract HIV. However, nowadays, for the first time, more heterosexual people are HIV positive than Queer people. And statistically over 50 per cent of all adults living with HIV currently identify as women. ​ Ableism Beliefs or practices that rest on the assumption that being able-bodied is “normal” while other states of being need to be “fixed” or altered. This can result in devaluing or discriminating against people with physical, intellectual or psychiatric disabilities. Institutionalised ableism may include or take the form of un/intentional organisational barriers that result in disparate treatment of disabled people. See: Accessibility, Inter-able, Neurodiverse & Autism. Abolition The action of putting a stop to a system, practice, or an institution, typically to make way for more progressive legislation and ways of working to reflect the liberalised views of mainstream society. ​ Abuse Abuse is the improper usage or treatment of a person, often to unfairly or improperly gain benefit. Abuse can come in many forms, such as: physical or verbal maltreatment, injury, assault, violation, rape, unjust practices, crimes, or other types of aggression. Historically marginalised groups are disproportionately impacted by the effects of abuse. ​ Accessibility The "ability to access" the functionality of a system or entity, and gain the related benefits. The degree to which a product, service, or environment is accessible by as many people as possible. Accessible design ensures both direct (unassisted) access and indirect access through assistive technology (e.g., computer screen readers). In this sense, thinking about digital accessibility makes us consider the way in which we share information. Universal design ensures that an environment can be accessed, understood, and used to the greatest extent possible by all people. See: Ableism. Accountability The acceptance of responsibility for one's own actions. It implies a willingness to be transparent, allowing others to observe and evaluate one's performance. ​ Achievement In the world we live in, especially when it comes to our careers, a lot of our accomplishments are based on achievements. In the LGBTQIA+ Community, we have achieved a lot, as far as civil rights and acceptance in society. When there is always more to do to improve though, it is sometimes easy to forget to reflect on what we have achieved, and where we have come from. The same applies to all of us on an individual basis - we should all make time to look back and truly appreciate what we have done, and what it took to bring us here today. ​ Achillean Also known as Men Loving Men (MLM), describes men, male-leaning individuals, or masculine-aligned people of all genders who are attracted to other men, male-leaning individuals, or masculine-aligned people of all genders. ​ Activist Someone who labels themselves as an ‘activist’ typically adopts a more grassroots approach and can (to an extent) hold anti-establishment mindset. Often, an activist’s lifestyle can be heavily steered by their stance on a specific issue. Furthermore, activists spur on wider political and systemic change through their actions and words. See: Grassroots. Addiction An addiction manifests in any behaviour that a person finds temporary pleasure or relief in and therefore craves, suffers negative consequences from, and has trouble giving up. Members of the LGBTQIA+ Community are statistically more than twice as likely than straight people to battle with addiction at some point in their lifetime. This may be down to increased mental health challenges, internalised negative views about oneself as a result of marginalisation and discrimination, or a coping response to trauma. ​ Adoption The adoption of children by same-sex and queer couples is a concept that has recently received more-widespread support in the mainstream and this has been reflected in changes in legislation. This does not mean that same-sex and queer parents do not face opposition to adopting children from those who are more conservative. Adoption is a great way for same-sex/queer couples who are not able to conceive naturally to expand their family, and also provide a loving home to a child who is disadvantaged. It is also common for couples who can conceive to adopt out of a desire to positively impact the life of a child living in care. (See: Family and Fostering) Adversity Referring to a difficult or unpleasant situation. Queer people regularly face adversity that cisgender heterosexual people do not, such as discrimination in the workplace, rejection by family members, medical gatekeeping, political scapegoating or violence and abuse on account of their identity. ​ Advocate Similarly to an ‘activist,’ an advocate also wants to make change and support a cause or community that matters to them. However, they work within existing systems to raise awareness about issues and injustice, selectively considering when they are vocal about a specific issue - amplifying discourse taking place in society, and bolstering the efforts of activists. ​ Affirmations Something that motivates, inspires and encourages you to take action and to realise your goals. These are most often short phrases that you can repeat throughout the day. Affirmations are important tools to help us change our patterns of thought, maintain a positive mindset, and also help us get back on to the right path if we are struggling. ​ Affirmative Action Affirmative action involves sets of policies and practices within a government or organisation seeking to include particular groups based on their gender, race, disability, sexuality, creed or nationality in areas in which such groups are underrepresented. This is important to ensure diversity of thought within organisations, as well as to bolster social mobility of individuals who are afforded opportunities. ​ Agender Denoting or relating to a person who does not identify themselves as having a particular gender. ​ Ally An ally is someone who supports people who are in a minority group or who are discriminated against, even though they do not belong to that group themselves. True allyship requires action and continuous unwavering solidarity. It is not about convenience or optics - this would be considered 'Performative Allyship'. The positive effect of an ally can only be evaluated by the receiver. ​ Altruism Altruism is the principle and moral practice of concern for the welfare and/or happiness of other human beings or animals. ​ Ambassador An ambassador (in terms of DEI) is normally someone who an organisation or brand partners with. Normally, this ambassador will be part of a marginalised community who is vocal on societal issues and injustices. ​ Androgyny Androgyny is the quality or state of being neither specifically feminine or masculine. ​ Anti-Racism Anti-racism encompasses a range of ideas and political actions which are meant to counter racial prejudice, systemic racism, and the oppression of specific racial groups. It is important that we all practice Anti-Racism within the Queer Community, as many of the biggest changemakers who have helped afford us the civil rights we have today, have been People of Colour. ​ Anti-Semitism Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities. Just like any other form of discrimination, Anti-Semitism has no place in the Queer Community, or in wider society as a whole. ​ Anxiety Anxiety is a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear, that can be mild or severe (which is often identified through medical diagnosis). Everyone has feelings of anxiety at some point in their life, but LGBTQ+ people are more than twice as likely to experience. If your anxiety is getting in the way of your everyday life, it's important to seek support from people that you trust, and find holistic tools to help manage the symptoms. See: Grounding, Meditation & Reflection. Appropriation The inappropriate or unacknowledged adoption of an element or elements of one's culture or identity by members of another culture or identity. This can be controversial when members of a dominant culture appropriate from minority cultures. When thinking specifically about the appropriation of the LGBTQIA+ community, Queerbaiting is a prime example of this. ​ Archetype A statement, pattern of behaviour, or model which others then replicate or emulate going forward. The archetype has become recognisable or quintessential as a standard of the type in society over generations of human culture - specifically for the LGBTQIA community, this manifests itself in types of people or crowds in the community - who have similar body types, interests or display similar behaviours. ​ Asexuality A person who does not experience sexual attraction. Some asexual people experience romantic attraction, while others do not. Asexual people who experience romantic attraction might also use terms such as gay, bi, lesbian, straight and queer in conjunction with asexual to describe the direction of their romantic attraction. ​ Assimilation Assimilation is the process in which a minority group or culture comes to resemble a society's majority group or assume the values, behaviours, and beliefs of another group whether fully or partially. An example of assimilation in that Queer People could be seen as changing their behaviour depending on who they're facing. This is often at the expense of one's own culture and identity. For queer folks, assimilation can mean subsuming or erasing their queer or racialized identity to fit into heteronormative society. It can often look like internalised homophobia, racism, or transphobia, which keeps us closed in and conforming to societal norms at the expense of our own authentic selves. Here are examples of assimilation: - Avoiding holding hands with a partner in public to avoid negative reactions from others. - Changing ones appearance or behaviour to conform to gender norms. - Choosing not to come out to one's family and friends for fear of rejection. - Pretending to only have relationships with the opposite sex to avoid discrimination. - Avoiding talking about ones sexuality or gender identity at work to avoid judgement or discrimination. - Suppressing aspects of their cultural identity to avoid discrimination or rejection from others. See: Code-switching. Asylum Seeker A person who leaves their country of birth or residence, enters another country and seeks protection by the state in this other country. An asylum seeker is an immigrant who has been forcibly displaced and might have fled their home country because of war or other factors harming them or their family. ​ Authenticity Authenticity is the acknowledgment, and eventual integration of all the aspects that make us who we are. It informs our ability to choose what feels right at any given moment. ​ Autism Autism is a neurological and developmental difference that affects how people interact with others, communicate, learn, and behave. Although autism can be diagnosed at any age, symptoms generally appear in the first two years of life. Symptoms present themselves differently in women and girls so they historically have been underdiagnosed in early years and diagnosed later in life. Autism is a form of neurodiversity. ​ BIPOC Stands for Black, Indigenous, and people of colour. Pronounced “bye-pock,” this is a term specific to the United States, intended to centre the experiences of Black and Indigenous groups and demonstrate solidarity between communities of colour. ​ Ball Culture The Ballroom Scene is an African-American and Latino underground LGBTQ+ subculture that originated in New York City. Beginning in the late 20th century, Black and Latino drag queens began to organize their own pageants in opposition to racism experienced in established drag queen pageant circuits. ​ Belief "Core beliefs" can refer to one's personal values and ideologies in life, a lot of which can be based upon society or those of whom are close to us. However, beliefs also refer to what we think is true about ourselves. For example, as Queer people or folks from historically marginalised backgrounds, we often grow up applying meaning to certain parts of our identity. Internalised beliefs can have a massive effect on our self-esteem, how we view ourselves, our wellbeing, and ultimately our ability to reach our full potential. In order for us to remove these internal barriers it is important that we check in regularly with ourselves, and question the validity of our own beliefs. ​ Belonging Belonging is a fundamental part of being human: We need people and this need is hardwired into our brains. Belonging is, of course, that feeling of connectedness to a group or community. It’s the sense that you’re part of something. You feel attached, close and thoroughly accepted by your people. But belonging is more than just being part of a group. The notion of belonging, or social identity, is a central aspect of how we define who we are. We consider ourselves to be individuals but it is our membership of particular groups that is most important in constructing our own personal and unique sense of identity. ​ Bias A prejudice in favour of or against one thing, person, or group. Brains automatically make quick judgments and assessments. They are influenced by our background, personal experiences, societal stereotypes and cultural context. It's not just about gender, ethnicity and other visible diversity characteristics such as height, body weight, names, and many other things can also trigger unconscious bias. Unconscious bias can have a significant influence on our attitudes and behaviours, especially towards other people. It can influence key decisions in the workplace and can contribute to inequality, for example in selection and recruitment, appraisals, or promotion. Understanding unconcious bias is key to understanding the origins of discrimination and inequalities which marginalised people are victim of. ​

  • Performance/Performativity

    Performance/Performativity Performativity is the concept that language can function as a form of social action and have the effect of change. Performative Allyship: Performative allyship refers to actions performed under the guise of allyship to a marginalised group but which aren’t actually helpful. Often performative allyship is about creating the impression that someone is engaged or contributing to activism, without actually committing to the cause or putting in meaningful work. Considering the effects of Performative Allyship is especially prudent during the time around Pride season. You’re likely to see an uptick in conversations about “rainbow washing”, a term to describe the trend of corporations donning rainbow colours and sharing statements offering surface level support for the Queer Community. This is performative allyship that does little of substance for our community and it does not deserve praise! “Being an ally is not voluntary work. If you are a real ally or motivated to be one, the drive is intrinsic.” - Allan Kartodikromo See: Activist and Changemaker. < Back to Glossary

  • 7 Powerful Steps to Become an Active Ally.

    We explore what 'active allyship' means and techniques we can all employ to help others and provoke change. What does true allyship mean to you? Are you aware of gaps in your knowledge and want to educate yourself further on the experiences of others and how to handle certain situations? Check out our team's tips below! Breaking It Down: What is 'Active Allyship'? An ally is someone who provides support and assistance to members of a marginalised group without being a part of that group themselves. This doesn't mean that an ally is without marginalizations - an ally's commitment to a cause may be driven by experiencing injustice in other areas. By allying yourself with a marginalised group you strengthen their power and provide added legitimacy to their claims. In moments of pushback, you can offer support and protection. 1. Embrace Vulnerability and Discomfort. Being an ally is a constant learning journey. In advocating for people who have different experiences from you there is inherently a lot to learn. Culturally, we treat being wrong or not knowing something as failing, but these moments are actually opportunities for learning and growth! 2. Know How to Address Your Mistakes. Being able to recognise your own shortcomings and address them maturely is a key allyship skill. Avoid getting defensive when someone corrects you or gives you constructive criticism of your allyship. When corrected, simply saying thank you is enough. Being overly apologetic or engaging in self-victimising behaviour makes the situation about you and your feelings, rather than the marginalised people you are being an ally to. 3. Tap Into Your Own Sense of Justice. Think about a time when someone has stood up for you or championed your voice and how that made you feel. We all have the power to make the people around us feel seen, heard and uplifted. As an ally, you have been granted privileges and ways to succeed that the groups you are fighting for have less access to, but you can lessen that disparity through your allyship. 4. Keep Learning. Allyship requires consistent work and effort. Your allyship learning journey is yours to navigate and it is important that you seek out education independently and not ask marginalised people to do the work for you. Identify the areas of weakness within your own knowledge and begin to fill them in using trusted resources (such as our We Create Space Library). 5. Stand Up and Speak Out. Finding the courage to be the person who speaks up when something isn't right can be difficult, but systems of injustice will continue to perpetuate themselves until we disrupt them. Be confident that even if it ruffles a few feathers, you are doing the right thing. By visibly standing up for what you believe in you can help inspire these people to start their own allyship journeys. 6. Be Mindful in Confrontation. As much as possible, try to meet people where they're at with an open mind and call in rather than call out. Displaying aggression, judgement and negativity will often trigger defensive behaviour. Instead, try to approach the situation from a place of curiosity while illustrating the flaws in their argument. You can share your own opinions and values but allow them to come to their own conclusions. 7. Stay Focused and Committed True allyship comes from a desire to do good and make a genuine difference in the lives of the people you are advocating for and it's important not to lose sight of this. Your allyship should not be driven by your own ego or a need for approval from others. The people you're fighting for should always be the benefactors. Find internal satisfaction in knowing that you're doing your best to harness your individual power to try and better the world. Conclusion Active allyship is a powerful tool for change that we all have the ability to harness. Being an ally means living in awareness of systems of oppression and doing our best to disrupt and dismantle those systems where we can. Allyship is like a muscle and the more you practise and get into the habit of addressing microaggressions, discrimination and bigotry in the world around you, the easier and more natural it will feel.

  • Pride Month: What it is and what it isn't.

    As we launch into June, let's take some time to consider how we can centre what Pride season is really about. It’s that time of the year again, and Pride is finally upon us! It’s a season of celebration, inclusion, joy and remembrance of those who have come before us. That being said, as the celebration of Pride month has grown exponentially over recent years, we wanted to uncover what the spirit of the season is, as well as what it isn’t. 1. Pride is a celebration of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities. It is not a single monolithic experience. PRIDE encompasses a vibrant tapestry of identities, including but not limited to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, and pansexual folks. 2. Pride is a commemoration of the struggles and achievements of the LGBTQ+ community. It is not a mere party or parade. It recognizes the historical and ongoing fight for equality, human rights, and dignity, paying homage to those who paved the way for progress. 3. Pride is an affirmation of self-acceptance and authenticity. It is not a platform for judgement or exclusion. It encourages individuals to embrace their true selves and express their identities free from societal constraints while promoting inclusivity and understanding. 4. Pride is a call for visibility and representation. It is not about erasing other identities or experiences. It seeks to amplify the voices and stories of marginalized folks, fostering an environment where everyone's unique journey is acknowledged and respected. 5. Pride is a platform for advocacy and activism. It is not an excuse for performative allyship. It urges allies to go beyond rainbow symbols and engage in meaningful actions that challenge discrimination, support LGBTQ+ causes, and dismantle systemic oppression. 6. Pride is a reminder that the fight for LGBTQ+ rights is far from over. It is not a declaration of "mission accomplished." While progress has been made, discrimination, violence, and inequality still persist. PRIDE inspires individuals to continue advocating for change and standing up against injustice. 7. Pride is an intersectional movement. It is not disconnected from other social justice causes. It recognizes that identities are complex and interconnected, acknowledging the importance of addressing issues such as racism, sexism, ableism, and economic inequality within the LGBTQ+ community. 8. Pride is a catalyst for education and dialogue. It is not an excuse for ignorance or avoidance. It prompts individuals to educate themselves about LGBTQ+ history, experiences, and terminology, fostering empathy, understanding, and meaningful conversations. 9. Pride is a safe space for self-expression, love and acceptance. It is not a threat to anyone's rights or values. It is not an invitation for voyeurism or objectification. It encourages people to express themselves authentically, but respect for boundaries, consent, and personal autonomy should always prevail.
