  • How do we create equality for all gender identities, particularly those who are LGBT?

  • Human rights are violated when people are attacked because of their sexual orientation or because they don't follow the other's cultural norms about how they should look or behave.

  • We have made great steps in recent decades in our society to support lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people who make a big contribution to our culture and to our economy.

  • Despite all this, LGBT people continue to face and fight with significant barriers in their life.

  • More and more study shows that this irrational phobia against this collectivity hasn't gone away.

  • But how discrimination affects LGBT people?

  • In some countries, people from the community have difficulties in accessing education or workplaces.

  • They are also frequent victims of human trafficking.

  • In rare cases, there is even death penalty for being LGBT.

  • Just imagine you are a boy and declare yourself gay in front of your family and school mates.

  • After that, your schoolmates would mob you or just tell uncomfortable things; some of your friends would suggest you to commit suicide.

  • Situations like that are not so rare as you might think.

  • So what needs to be done then?

  • Sexual identities are changing.

  • It's important that the government has a handle on this and, most important, the schools, universities and health institutions.

  • The regulation of homosexual marriage can be a step to the right direction.

  • Everyone needs to support this community.

  • Start with yourself and help to build a way towards justice.
