Military REACH Review | October 2022 Newsletter

About 6% of our U.S. Service members identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT). October is LGBT History Month and a time to reflect on the contributions these individuals have made to our society, so here are a few ways you can become an ally to the LGBTQ+ community:

  • If you hear an anti-LGBTQ+ comment or joke, speak up. You can ask things like, "What do you mean by that joke?" or "I don't get why that's funny; can you explain it to me?"
  • Integrate inclusive language (such as saying partner instead of wife or husband, sibling instead of brother or sister) into your regular conversations, professional interactions, and/or spiritual life.
  • Add your pronouns to your email signature (e.g., she/her, they/them).
