As some of you might understand that LGBT, or GLBT, is an initialism that stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender.

It may refer to anyone who is non-heterosexual or non-cisgender, instead of just to the people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. LGBTQ, adds the letter Q for those who identify as queer or who are “questioning their identity.”

Why are people gay?

In 1993, a study published within the journal Science showed that families with two homosexual brothers were very likely to possess certain genetic markers on a neighborhood of the X chromosome referred to as Xq28. This led to media headlines about the likelihood of the existence of a “gay gene” and discussions about the ethics of aborting a “gay” fetus
But unlikely the study’s genes are not been able to complete the behavior. Though it can regulate the production of amino acids, which combine to form proteins.

We think that whether sexual orientation is something people are born with or something they choose should not make a difference in how individuals or groups are treated. The following is excerpted from the American Psychological Association’s 2008 publication titled Answers to your questions for a better understanding of sexual orientation and homosexuality :

There is no consensus among scientists about the exact reasons that an individual develops a heterosexual, bisexual, gay, or lesbian orientation. Although much research has examined the possible genetic, hormonal, developmental, social, and cultural influences on sexual orientation, no findings have emerged those permit scientists to conclude that sexual orientation is determined by any particular factor or factors. Many think that nature and nurture both play complex roles.

Are bisexual people are people who haven’t finished coming out as gay or lesbian?

No.

Bisexual, pansexual, and omnisexual people are open to attraction and physical/sexual connections to people of various gender identities. This question is an example of an issue that is unique to the experiences of bi-/pan-/omnisexual folks. The stigma attached to bisexuality exists within lesbian and gay communities as well as within heterosexual communities. Some bisexual people may hide their identity from both the heterosexual and lesbian and gay communities, believing neither will accept them.

Bisexual identification is often met with skepticism in the gay & lesbian communities and is seen as an attempt to avoid the stigma of homosexuality. Other common misperceptions are that bisexual people are promiscuous or are unable to be in monogamous relationships.

What is the constitutional basis for LGBT equality?

Different countries proposes rights for the comunity, some of them are mentioned below :-

  1. In August 2017, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that the right to individual privacy is an intrinsic and fundamental right under the Indian Constitution. The Court also ruled that a person’s sexual orientation is a privacy issue, giving hopes to LGBT activists that the Court would soon strike down Section 377.
  2. Ten states, the District of Columbia, many municipalities and hundreds of businesses and universities now ban employment discrimination.
  3. “Domestic Partnership” programs exist in dozens of municipalities and hundreds of private institutions, including many of the country’s largest corporations and universities.
  4. Sodomy laws, typically used to justify discrimination against gay people, once existed nationwide; they are now on the books in only 18 states and Puerto Rico.

NO.

“Learning to be yourself and dealing with other people’s perception of you can be hard for anyone.”

This process can be especially stressful or tough for students who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT). In fact, they can face unique issues when it comes to mental health. The discrimination LGBT students may face or the pressure they feel from their family or community, can put them at greater risk for emotional health struggles like depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and even suicide.
It’s important to speak up about it. Everyone is different in his/her own unique way, help them to speak up for them, or accept them the way they are.

How to overcome mental health conditions?

LGBTQ individuals who are dealing with mental health conditions like depression may have to contend with even more stigma because of discrimination or misunderstandings related to their sexual orientation. You can deal with it by:-

  1. Surrounding yourself with supportive people.
  2. Seek help if you are experiencing sadness, anxiety, or stress.
  3. Remember it has nothing to do with you, society creates their own perception but you are capable of overcoming their thoughts. And it’s definitely not your fault.
  4. Join a group that helps you to participate in mental health or LGBT advocacy group on campus.

How to help a friend?

  1. Listen and empathize, You might experience a variety of emotions — like confusion, surprise, and sadness —when finding out about a friend’s sexual orientation or emotional health issues. This is to be expected. They are normal responses. When talking to them, don’t interrupt and remain open to what they’re saying. Avoid judging them, and try to put yourself in their shoes.
  2. Get educated and Learn more about mental illness and the concerns that LGBT individuals might have. This helps you better understand what your friend is going through and know how to help them.
  3. Challenge the stigma and Try not to make derogatory comments about LGBT individuals. Even jokes just further stereotypes and stigma. And speak up when others make comments or jokes.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?| Lynnell Orbadiah Stan
