having trans friends doesn’t automatically make you a trans ally

“i’m not transphobic, i know loads of trans people”

knowing us / being friends with us doesn’t automatically mean you are an ally to us

allyship takes active work & time

being an ally requires listening to trans people, using the correct name & pronouns, practicing gender neutral language, learning how best to support trans people, showing up for us & amplifying our voices.

and that’s just a start.

having trans friends doesn’t automatically make you a trans ally

being an ally requires actively working to understand & empathise with us.
