"The Ally is YOU".
The theme, "The Ally is YOU" allows us to focus on supporting all sections of the LGBT community. The term “Ally” refers not only to supportive people outside the LGBT community, but also to those within who make an effort to include and support identities and cultures other than their own. "The Ally is YOU" encompasses the topics of inclusion, equality, identity, culture, ethnicity, race, politics, and socio-economics.
