Presenter: Scott Fearing, University of Rochester


In 1980, Scott Fearing came out to himself as a gay man—and the world did not end … but it also was not very welcoming. Although great strides have been made toward LGBTQ+ inclusion during the past four decades, there is still so much left to do and LGBTQ+ people can’t do it alone. They need allies!

With his signature non-judgmental, approachable and humorous style, Fearing examines the power of the ally through personal stories and offers real-life, practical tips for supporting the LGBTQ+ people in your life.

Learning Outcomes
  • Understand how to become an active ally
  • Explain the role that allies can play in creating an inclusive environment
  • Identify five key behaviors that can help allies succeed
