TheВ FightВ forВ Equality: В LGBTQВ AcceptanceВ inВ theВ 21stВ CenturyВ AВ ReviewВ ofВ theВ LiteratureВ

AccordingВ toВ theВ HumanВ RightsВ Campaign, В 92%В ofВ LGBTQВ (Lesbian, В Gay, В Bisexual, В Transgender, В Questioning)В youthВ sayВ theyВ hearВ negativeВ messagesВ aboutВ theirВ sexuality. В TheВ topВ sourcesВ ofВ theseВ negativeВ messagesВ areВ school, В theВ InternetВ andВ theirВ peers. В BeingВ bulliedВ andВ harassedВ forВ whoВ youВ chooseВ toВ loveВ isn'tВ just, В andВ certainlyВ isn'tВ humane. В IВ choseВ thisВ topicВ asВ myВ passionВ projectВ becauseВ IВ stronglyВ believeВ everyoneВ wasВ createdВ equal, В andВ thatВ everyoneВ deservesВ toВ beВ treatedВ thatВ wayВ noВ matterВ what. В IВ knowВ fromВ experienceВ withВ myВ LGBTQВ friendsВ howВ hardВ itВ canВ beВ toВ hideВ whoВ theyВ trulyВ areВ everyВ singleВ day, В orВ faceВ theВ hurtfulВ wordsВ andВ actionsВ fromВ peersВ justВ becauseВ ofВ whoВ theyВ love. В IВ wantВ toВ makeВ aВ differenceВ inВ thisВ problemВ withВ teens, В andВ leadВ byВ exampleВ ofВ howВ toВ beВ anВ advocate. В AlthoughВ theВ situationВ isВ improving, В LGBTQВ identifiers, В especiallyВ teens, В areВ stillВ notВ treatedВ asВ equalsВ inВ societyВ atВ larger. В RaisingВ awarenessВ andВ standingВ upВ forВ identifiersВ areВ waysВ toВ reachВ equality. В В

BackgroundВ ofВ theВ InformationВ

InequalityВ likeВ slaveryВ hasВ existedВ inВ AmericaВ previously, В andВ racismВ isВ beginningВ toВ

В

disappearВ altogether. В EvenВ thoughВ thisВ formВ ofВ discriminationВ isВ dyingВ down, В sexualВ orientationВ inequalityВ stillВ isВ presentВ andВ veryВ controversialВ inВ theВ 21stВ century. В ThisВ isВ aВ problemВ becauseВ soВ manyВ LGBTQВ identifiersВ areВ losingВ benefitsВ andВ rightsВ thatВ straightВ peopleВ areВ bornВ with. В ForВ example, В teenagersВ areВ beingВ kickedВ outВ ofВ schoolsВ becauseВ ofВ whoВ theyВ love. В ManyВ ChristianВ schoolsВ inВ GeorgiaВ actuallyВ makeВ theirВ enrolledВ studentsВ signВ aВ paperВ sayingВ thatВ theyВ areВ straight. В KidsВ whoВ wantВ toВ attendВ theseВ schoolsВ forВ theВ educationВ, butВ areВ homosexual, В haveВ toВ beВ incrediblyВ secretive. В AВ studentВ attendingВ aВ GeorgiaВ oneВ suchВ schoolВ recallsВ aВ momentВ fromВ hisВ friendsВ past,  ​

" They found out she was a lesbian,  and they made her go in front of the entire school and tell them, "  says Tristan (the student).  " And then they kicked her out the next day. "  (Morris,  2013, p. 9).  LGBTQ adults are being discriminated as well,  but in a more serious form.  An identified teacher says " ​

AfterВ 12В yearsВ togetherВ IВ wasВ excitedВ toВ finallyВ beВ ableВ toВ marryВ myВ partner. В BecauseВ ofВ that, В IВ wasВ firedВ fromВ HolyВ GhostВ PreparatoryВ SchoolВ today. В IВ amВ anВ alumnusВ ofВ theВ schoolВ andВ haveВ taughtВ thereВ forВ 12В years. ” (Brydum, В 2013, g. В 3). В BeingВ firedВ fromВ yourВ jobВ andВ beingВ deniedВ theВ rightВ toВ marryВ isВ discriminationВ andВ awarenessВ needsВ toВ beВ raisedВ soВ equalityВ canВ beВ met. В В

EvidenceВ ofВ theВ ProblemВ

TheВ FightВ forВ Equality: В LGBTQВ AcceptanceВ inВ theВ 21stВ CenturyВ

BeingВ acceptedВ byВ othersВ aВ teenВ canВ beВ hard, В butВ imagineВ howВ itВ feelsВ toВ comeВ outВ toВ aВ societyВ thatВ stillВ isn'tВ 100%В supportiveВ aboutВ yourВ sexuality. В TheВ researchВ fromВ theВ HumanВ RightsВ CampaignВ sayВ thatВ 26%В ofВ LGBTQВ youth'sВ biggestВ problemВ inВ lifeВ isВ notВ feelingВ acceptedВ byВ theirВ family/peerВ andВ afraidВ ofВ beingВ bulliedВ forВ comingВ out. В Meanwhile, В 22%В ofВ straightВ teensВ sayВ theirВ biggestВ problemВ isВ havingВ troubleВ inВ classВ withВ examsВ andВ grades. В HomosexualВ studentsВ areВ spendingВ soВ muchВ timeВ worryingВ soВ muchВ aboutВ howВ othersВ willВ acceptВ themВ forВ whoВ theyВ are, В thatВ theyВ areВ forgettingВ aboutВ schoolworkВ andВ notВ doingВ theirВ best. В ThisВ isВ aВ reasonВ weВ needВ toВ raiseВ awarenessВ ofВ LGBTQВ equalityВ becauseВ identifiersВ shouldn'tВ spendВ theirВ daysВ worryingВ...
