With Pride Month just around the corner, it is only fitting to talk about the LGBTQ+ community and their everlasting resilience towards all odds.
Social attitudes toward the LGBTQ+ community have been changing over the years and improving for the better.
Different beliefs have been influenced by Abrahamic traditions that have been censured and in some cases restrained. However, since the 1970s, the world has become a more accepting place towards the LGBTQ+ community.
“Never be put into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define your own self.” As Harvey Fierstein said, hope can never be silent and love and self ownership should not mean living in fear.
For the past sixty plus years, there have been rapid changes in bureaucratic and state legislative bodies, both in terms of equal treatment and public recognition with full citizenship. With passing time the LGBTQ+ community is now an active part in schools, colleges, entertainment industries, corporate and government agencies and has encouraged many people to take a stand for themselves as well others.
Annual pride parades are now done in a big way.
More and more states and countries across the world are making laws to favor the community on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
Everyday the LGBTQ+ community is gaining an even stronger and more confident voice. They refuse to be silent and have made great efforts to reclaim equality.
Freedom of love has its unique beauty and charm.
