 group who works to end oppression in his or her private and professional life through
 support of, and as an advocate for the oppressed population" (Washington & Evans,
 Becoming an Ally). Allies to racial, religious, and ethnic minorities have beern
 remarkably effective in promoting positive change in the dominant culture, and only
 recently has their instrumental position been extended to the area of sexual orientation

 support for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender movement.
