IGNITE!.Texas Tech's Program for LGBTQIA Allyship

IGNITE! educates on the lived experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA) people, while networking and providing general support to students, faculty, and staff in their development as authentic allies. Program participants commit to act with compassion, respect, and dignity, and engage with others, including the Office of LGBTQIA Education & Engagement, to strengthen the inclusivity of Texas Tech University. Further, participants strive to ask questions and be honest in their self-exploration to understand the experiences and issues affecting LGBTQIA individuals. Program participants display an emblem to communicate their commitment to Allyship.
