100% ally and activist here! My closest friends are homossexual, and it made me very angry to think that they didn't have the same rights as me. In Brazil, gay marriage (converting stable union to marriage) was legalized in 2012/2013, but there is still work to do, specially concerning adoption, public opinion, and marriage that is not derived from stable union. Sadly, there are still some terrible cases of homophobia going on, and lots of daily subtle homophobic actions that don't catch people's attention, which for me are just as bad or even worse.
Narrow-minded people exist everywhere, but I'm happy we are making advances and proving they are not going to stop others from their civil rights!

I'm not one myself, but I consider myself an admirer (with the transgender population we've had some on here seeking advice on choosing a new name in the transition process, and I've used them as a point to defend my side when there was a debate over some name-change issues).
