PRESS: Folio Weekly, United We Stand

We Are Straight Allies is deeply appreciative for the thoughtful article posted this morning by the Folio Weekly, Northeast Florida’s Premier News & Opinion Magazine. “We are inextricably bound”

No, they haven’t re-evaluated their sexual identities. Each has come out as a straight ally for LGBT equality as part of an awareness campaign created by Chevara Orrin, Dan Bagan and Laura Riggs.

The idea is to change minds by introducing people who might share common ground with others in the community.”
