“No one has done a better job of chronicling what it is like to be gay in America.” U.S. Representative Barney Frank
“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, Witeck-Combs
“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.”
J Kevin Jones, Jr. Deputy Director, Out & Equal Workplace Advocates
“This is a very thoughtful, balanced resource that merits much attention, an important film on an issue so few of us understand how to address in the work environment. It is one thing to have a skill set in referencing and working with race or religion. It is quite another challenge to talk about gender and sexual orientation. I know that I have a lot to learn about how to be a skillful and effective ally. This film would be helpful to any one who wants to help create a work environment where every employee can flourish because they do not have to expend the energy trying to maintain a firewall between their family/personal lives and their professional lives. These are things that those of us who are heterosexual simply do not have to worry about. Look at this video. Celebrate what everyone, when respected, can bring to your world.
