1. Broad, K.. "Ally Storying: How Parents of LGBT Children Story Themselves as Allies to LGBTs" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Marriott Hotel, Loews Philadelphia Hotel, Philadelphia, PA, Aug 12, 2005 Online <PDF>. 2020-02-22 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Relying upon ethnographic research about “straight allies” to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) movement, this article details how an ally identity is constructed. In particular, this article details the auspices under which parents with LGBT children, involved in the organization PFLAG – Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, construct their ally identities and details how they do so with and to an LGBT audience. By adding an understanding of how parent-allies construct an ally identity to the “minority” audience, this research better details the unique identity work of social movement allies who construct themselves to two audiences and better utilizes emerging understandings of social movement identity.

2. ffitch, Madeline. "Ally or Accomplice? Weaponizing Privilege and Building Relationships Beyond the "Ally" Badge" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, Hilton Baltimore, Baltimore, MD, <Not Available>. 2020-02-22 <>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: Through informal discussions with BLAC, I realized that the English department could act autonomously to implement cultural competency curriculum. We began taking action together. My concern in this panel is to interrogate the role of white identity in this project. Considering recent emboldening of white nationalist rhetoric, how do white people reject the notion of white identity, while working to undo the reality of white privilege? What is the difference between being an ally and being an accomplice? How can white people move beyond some kind of "ally" identity to act in real solidarity across lines of race and culture?
