Orgs You Can Join If You Want To Be More Active As An LGBT Ally

While there is still a long way to go, it's become so much easier to find like-minded people who share the same cause.

True enough, 2020 is another year for us to break stereotypes for good. Slowly (ok, reeeaally slowly), gender roles are becoming a thing of the past, and rightfully so. As the world becomes more open, we’re more capable of changing the status quo. And while there is still a long way to go, it’s become so much easier to find like-minded people who share the same cause. 

Gender equality and understanding sexual orientation and gender identity expression (SOGIE), by themselves, are complex matters. One of the ways to really understand why your stand matters or why you should make a stand at all, is through continuous learning. What better way to learn than with people who are just as passionate about changing the world as you, right?

We’ve listed down several NGOs who stand for gender equality and SOGIE where you can volunteer:
