Put simply, acceptance is the willingness for a society or culture to allow people to be who they are, despite their identity. That is, the degree in which a person is actively allowed to participate in social interactions, either with groups or other individuals.

In Queer contexts, this means the ability for Queer individuals to participate in the workplace, in social situations and institutions and to live without fear, prejudice or stigma. To live authentically, without discrimination.
