There are many ways to be a successful LGBT advocate. One way is to join an organization that supports LGBT rights and work within that organization to further its goals. Another way is to become involved in local politics and work to change laws and policies that discriminate against LGBT people. There are also many ways to be an advocate outside of formal organizations, such as by talking to friends and family about LGBT issues, educating others about the reality of LGBT lives, and speaking out against discrimination when you see it. The most important thing is to be true to yourself and believe in what you are doing. When you are authentic and passionate about your advocacy, you will be more likely to succeed.
