Now in 2018, 121 countries decriminalize same sex activity and 24 countries legalize same sex marriage, but sadly, there are still 74 countries that decriminalize it and 9 have the death penalty punishment for same sex activity. With fighting to gain their rights the LGBT have been through the battles, riots, marches, many were arrested, injured and even killed. However the effort, passion and dedication paid off, allowing many to have the rights they should have had in the beginning. With homophobia comes homophobic slurs and phrases. These slurs have been around for years and only a few years ago society classified these words as offensive leading to many stop using them.
Before DeGeneres’s coming out, gay people in the US were discriminated against and ignored in politics, television, and daily life. When a star as well-known as DeGeneres came out, it effectively placed a lesbian in the living rooms of an unknowing and intolerant America, opening their eyes to the reality of the unfair treatment of the LGBT community at that time. Because of this, countless other shows, celebrities, and everyday people have used Ellen as an example. Although homophobia still exists in the US today, DeGeneres, among countless other people and events, has brought the country in leaps and bounds toward equality and acceptance for gay
What’sWrongWithBisexuality? Nothing. I could just end my post here, but you know I like to argue. And many people need me to argue about that subject, either because you also want them to be more accepted or because there are still many things you need to know before judging them. Homosexuality has been more accepted in our society during the past years, (even though we still have a lot of work to do) but now, bisexual people are the one that have to face many of the prejudices the gay community faced before.
Such approach had a huge success. The whole story of the Diesel’s marketing strategy started in 1991 when was created the company’s motto - “Guides for Successful Living” which they used till 2015, when the label was changed and the new Diesel strategy introduced. Followed by international marketing strategy, Diesel started to create bright, eyecatchy and provoking fashion advertising that tell a story and describe the brand us fun, young and outstanding. First was in 1995, when the huge billboard called “Kissing Sailors” blew up the world and shuttered the advertising stereotypes, showing a gay kiss. Despite the fact, that this ads campaign was highly criticized by American media, it arise very important topic as homosexual couples and was supported by the general public.
American Popular Culture has becoming a driving force behind gays and lesbians. This nation has brought homosexuality to the forefront for everyone see. No matter if the person is real or a fictional character on T.V., in movies or singing on stage. With artist like Frank Ocean, transgender actors such as Laverne Cox and actress Ruby Rose and television host Ellen DeGeneres popular culture and homosexuality has changed drastically. However, in sports like football, basketball and boxing the culture surrounding gay males has yet to change.

On January 21, 2017 millions of U.S. citizens gathered together to march on Washington in protest of the inauguration of President Trump and everything that he stands for. The argument for or against equal rights for all is an ongoing one that has plagued the lives of many in the world since the dawn of time. The question itself is simple really; is every person in the world regardless of gender, race, sexuality, etc. worthy of having equality in every aspect of life? Is any one person more significant and worthy of power than another simply based on differences that we cannot change as humans?
It is not clear whether this kind of objectification affects the overall perception of the song, but the cocky nature of hip-hop became one of the pillars of the modern R&B as well. Another issue that has to be addressed as the consequence of the commercialization of R&B genre is the advent of performers that do not possess serious singing abilities, but their appearance can be perfectly aligned with the motto “sex sells.” Of course, this is not a general rule, but the influence of commercialization is evident due to the fact that physical features always were one of the most valuable assets in the
It was a magnificent day during the warm month of April, 2014 when young, early teenage me confronted my worst fear head on with the utmost courage and pride within myself that I never knew I had. “I… am gay.” I recall saying to my mother and father, this in turn invoking a bloodcurdling silence that saw me debating whether I had made the best or worst decision of my life. Fortunately, my deeply loving parents embraced this news and reassured me they cared not for my sexuality nor my flamboyancy but for my happiness and ability to accept myself for who I am. However, not all my same-sex loving peers are greeted to the warmth and affection that I was. With the slow but steady rise in the gay population in recent years comes a truly disturbing set of unwanted problems: self-doubters who disassociate themselves from loved ones due to fear of being recognised, homophobic fools with their childish impertinence and medieval few on homosexuality and most importantly conversion therapy, which sees a bunch of beautiful souls destroyed, denying their sexual preferences due to emotional, religious and mental manipulation.
The Humsafar Trust, started in 1994 is a community based organisation of self identified Gay men, MSM, Transgender, Hijras and LBT persons. The organisation works on issues of sexuality, gender, health and human rights through four thematic ideas: health, advocacy, research and capacity building of sexual minority groups. A brochure we got from the organisation very rightly says 'come home to Humsafar where your identity is a reason for pride and not a reason to hide'. At a time when America has made same sex marriage legal, where there is a wider wave of revolution going through, I hardly feel that the acceptance level LGBT community has increased drastically. We stereotype them, avoid them, treat them as unacceptable and what not.
