    I watched the movie American Beauty a couple of days ago and saw how homophobia might be a sign that the homophobic might be a homosexual. So I though I’d write about it. American Beauty centers on the last year of Lester Burnham’s life. Lester Burnham, played by Kevin Spacey, is married to Carolyn Burnham, played by Annette Betting, and their marriage is picture perfect on the outside, but the perfection is only superficially. Their marriage is based on projecting one image- a picture perfect suburbia

    There are many different views on what actions the government should or should not take against discrimination in the work place. People who want the government to take action want them to put a law in act to give employees the right to sue their employer if they are discriminated against. On the other hand people want the government to just leave it alone and let the issues work themselves out. The views on each side of the issue can be somewhat extreme, while still proving their point. The ideas

    The need for an anti-discrimination bill for members of the LGBT community is large and the discrimination against LGBT identifying individuals extends far past the workplace and into the homes and communities. Only 11 states currently provide transgender victims with protection under hate crimes. In all other states, violent crimes against transgender individuals are prosecuted without a hate crime enhancement. Transgender individuals often find it hard to find employment and feel safe. Due to the

    In this essay, I will explain how religion is sometimes used to mobilize against LGBT people, how some people’s religious and personal doctrines conflict regarding LGBT issues, and how religious belief and community can be a positive force for the LGBT community. In history, mainstream Abrahamic religions have had a negative relationship with LGBT persons. Beginning during the Hebrew exodus of Egypt, the purity codes documented in the Hebrew Bible’s Book of Leviticus explicitly stated a slew of rigid

    In Malaysia , discrimination against members of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community reached new levels of intensity ; sodomy remained a crime. In fact, the Government maintained its refusal to consider repeal of article 377A-B of the penal code, which criminalises “carnal intercourse against the order of nature”and punishes it with the penalty of imprisonment for a term extendable to twenty years. Throughout 2013 a government-backed musical aiming to warn young people about

    Currently, only 13 countries offer rights for members of the LGBT community. Within those countries, few offer equal rights such as health care, marriage rights, and adoption to LGBT members. Many people around the globe would agree that these rights, along with all other rights granted to heterosexuals, should not be granted to these members of the LGBT community. One prevalent notion is that being gay, or being included in the LGBT community, is unnatural. This notion is simply incorrect; everyone

    LGBT RIGHTS There are many problems going on out there in the world, but I feel the problems in the LGBT community should be a problem to be looked at. They get treated unfairly and their rights get violated all the time. They have to deal with violence, bullying, discrimination, and much more. They are humans just like anyone else, I don’t see why they get treated unfairly just because they don’t feel like they belong in their bodies or if they like the same sex, they are still humans that

    “the quality or state of being equal : the quality or state of having the same rights, social status, etc.” -Merriam Websters Online Dictionary This statement is something the LGBT community fights so hard for every day. I chose this topic because I am openly bisexual and I have many LGBT friends who fight for rights day after day, sometime without any results. I find it interesting not only learning about specific rights that are being denied and what is being done about it, but learning about the

    and transsexual (LGBT) community has existed for years. LGBT individuals are often bullied, abused, and denied their basic rights and benefits. The right to marry is one of them. Same-sex marriage should be legalized because marriage is indeed a civil right, it provides many benefits, and would be beneficial to society as a whole. The gay rights movement dates back to the late 1960s, when police raids on gay bars were a common occurrence. The raids sparked protest among the LGBT community. In fact

    “From the equality of rights springs identity of our highest interests; you cannot subvert your neighbor’s rights without striking a dangerous blow at your own.”(Schurz). This quote by Carl Schurz, who died in 1906, still rings true for today’s battle of protection of sexual identity and orientation in the workplace. (American). A report on “discrimination and its effects” shows that 27% of LGB employees were harassed at work while 78% of transgender people reported some type of employment related
