In praise of Anyone Can Be An Ally:
"Many of us aspire to be concise and convincing allies for our lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender family, friends and colleagues, but struggle with how to be effective in doing this the 'right way.'
In this short 14-minute video, Brian McNaught offers what we need to know, say and do as allies - in a way that is compelling, informative and actionable. If you are looking for guidance about language choices, when to speak up, and how to foster inclusion as an authentic LGBT ally, this video (and a little courage and practice) is all you need to have the confidence and capability to make a difference."
Deb Dagit, Global Head of Diversity & Inclusion
for a Fortune 100 company
"There is no better mentor, trusted voice or clearer thinker to educate straight allies and their LGBT co-workers and colleagues than Brian McNaught. This video gives power and purpose to everyone who believes as he does that an open, honest, and accepting workplace is an imperative for every employer."
Bob Witeck, Founder and CEO,
"No one has done a better job of chronicling what it is like to be gay in America."
U.S. Representative Barney Frank
"Our hope for a world where we can live fully and equally relies on the courage of our allies - our family, friends and co-workers - and on the wisdom of heroes like Brian McNaught. In 'Anyone Can Be An Ally,' Brian brings his clear, engaging expertise to create a resource that everyone who seeks justice for, and understanding within, the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community will appreciate. It is an invaluable tool for cultural change, as Brian is a priceless voice for dignity and respect."
