Having an ally can make a big impact on​ the lives of LGBTQIA+ people. Research shows those LGBTQIA+ members who have supportive families and communities have greater self-esteem and resilience and ​are at a lower risk of negative outcomes like depression, hopelessness and substance abuse.

The campaign is an initiative to create awareness about the negative effects of homophobia in society, particularly in the Hispanic community. It aims to create discussion and action at different levels, such as schools, houses of worships, work places, health care settings, and most importantly, family.

This year’s theme is “My Best Ally Is …” which will allow LGBTQIA+ community members to identify who his/her best ally is –that special person who empowers him/her to be the best version of himself/herself.

No movement can thrive without partners. Only as a community we will reach zero homophobia. If you’re the leader or member of an organization and would like to get involved in the campaign, sign on and let’s get started. You can start by fostering an environment within your organization that doesn’t allow homophobic sentiments. Or you can organize an event or initiative for the community you serve. Big or small, any positive action will create visibility to eradicate homophobia.

In preparing your event, feel free to use the poster of this year’s campaign, share Zero’s social media posts with your contacts, watch and share the videos, download, adapt and disseminate the fact sheets.
