What can we do as Queer Allies? | During COVID -19

A lot of queer persons are currently forced to be in spaces where they cannot be themselves or in abusive spaces during COVID-19. What can we do to support them?

(1) Check in on them. Ask them if they’re going to be okay during this time and how they would like to be supported.

(2) Provide a safe living space. If you’re in a position to, offer your queer friends who are in abusive spaces a place to stay for the next couple of weeks.

(3) Support them financially. Many queer persons in India don’t have access to the same resources as non queer persons. Offer to pay for their groceries, internet, parts of their rent, as per your capacity.

(4) Be a safe space. Encourage them to keep in touch with you and be there for them without judgement. Ensure you communicate your boundaries and capacity to support them clearly.
