Reading Desperate Housewives discusses several aspects of the show, including queer dilemmas. The eighth chapter written by Kristian T. Kahn contains that Marc Cherry “is a self-proclaimed ‘gay Republican’” (McCabe, 95). Cherry supports Republican values and he is also homosexual which appears in the show, so left and right wings also can enjoy it (McCabe, 97). The creator of the show has a lot in common with Andrew Van De Kamp. When he came out to his mother, she was surprised and worried about the fact that they would not meet in heaven.
Discrimination feels like a relic of the past--something Americans struggled against and that the United States outlawed in the 1960s. But this was not the case for LGBT individuals. Today, in America, land of the free and the home of the brave, a lesbian can be fired simply for being gay. A gay couple can be refused a wedding cake for the most important day in their life. A gay couple could be refused their right to adopt a child.
The lyrics within the song stimulate many different emotions and sends a very clear message to the audience: gay people should have the same equal rights of everyone and America has become too insensitive on the topic of homosexuality. One of the most controversial political topics within the past decade ascribes to same sex marriage. On June 16, 2015 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled for same sex marriage to be legal in all fifty states in the United States of America. The LGBTQ+ community persistently fought a long, hard battle to receive equal rights in the U.S. and they finally reached a landmark achievement in 2015. The LGBTQ+ community faced many obstacles; however, they surpassed those hurdles with not only perseverance, but also with the help of allies.
While Kelly is shown to be a bisexual who likes to have fun, she had, in fact, a deeper reason for it. She was married to her husband for forty nine years, while she loved him, she wants to enjoy the final few months of her life thus ending up in San Junipero and going to clubs, experiencing life. Yorkie also has that tragic background looming over her. Being from a conservative, religious family and paralyzed, she should have angst the whole way through the episode. However, what is brilliant about her character and the writing in the episode is that her past was only revealed near the end and her dialogues never once directly talked about.
Gay marriage is one of the most controversial and sensitive issues in the modern world. In most cultures across the globe, homosexuality was viewed with disdain, and marriages between same-sex couples were prohibited. However, homosexual relationships are slowly gaining acceptance. With an increase in tolerance for homosexuality in the society, the controversy over the legalization of gay marriage has been disputed among people in many nations. While the majority of the population believes that the legalization of gay marriage will have negative impact on the society, gay activists claim that it is against basic civil rights to prohibit them from marrying.
I have known her for the past eight years and I had no idea that she identified as bisexual. I was not aware of her sexual orientation because recently she realized that she is also attracted to the opposite sex. She is now dating another person that identifies as a butch. Hearing my friend talk about how in love she is with her partner made me feel happy for her, but I also kept thinking how my faith does not accept homosexuality. Furthermore, my faith also does not tolerate anyone who discriminates against any other individual because only God can judge.
The Right to Marry: Throughout history homosexuality has been treated differently depending on culture religion and historical context. We can’t deny the fact that it always has been a controversial topic and it is in our actual society one of the main points of debate since a lot of countries now are reviewing their current situation and their position on gay marriage.

There are many reasons why governments do not accept gay marriage. The first one is that people living in these countries do not accept gay people. Most of the people are not aware of what actually being gay is. They think that being gay is a mental or physical illness or a social and religious deviance. Actually, being gay is a sexual orientation, not a choice that people make.
People think gays are like aliens, but it isn’t true. LGBT is a group of people that stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender. It’s been scientifically proven that being gay is natural. But why some people can’t accept the way they are? Many gay people have to go through hell in their families and even in their schools.
Here in the Philippines, LGBT parenting is dishonorable because of the conservative sectors, especially the Catholic church. They also believe that heterosexual are the one who is capable of taking care of their children and having a family. There were many people who are against in LGBT parenting, but in reality homosexual may be the best parents. Gays are better parents than the straight parents and homosexual can be a good example in raising a child and a role model to the heterosexual parents.
