About Ally Appreciation Week

The UNC-CH LGBTQ Center started Ally Appreciation Week as a way to thank our Safe Zone Allies (those who have completed Safe Zone training and taken the Ally Pledge). Safe Zone Allies at UNC-CH provide a visible network of affirming support for people of all gender identities, gender expressions, and sexual orientations. We believe that allies come from inside and outside of LGBTIQA+ communities, for instance, a gay cisgender person can be an ally to an asexual transgender person. 

To participate, simply wear a rainbow "Ally" or smiley-face pin that you've picked up at an LGBTQ Center training or event as you shop at participating local businesses!


Sponsoring Ally Appreciation Week

Local businesses become sponsors by Please consider helping us create a visible network of local LGBTIQA+ affirming businesses and organizations by offering discounts and freebies to anyone wearing a rainbow pin with the word “ally” or a smiley face printed on it. We also invite you to donate door prizes to be given away in a raffle to Fair attendees. Sponsors receive recognition on the UNC-CH LGBTQ Center's website, social media, and on TPRF promotional materials. The UNC-CH LGBTQ Center is a nonprofit, so we can also provide you with a tax receipt for a door prize donation, if requested.
