International Day Against Homophobia And Transphobia
People have a misconception about bisexual, gay, and lesbian people. Most people think that they have different physical characteristics and mannerisms. But, this is not completely true. Generally, they hold the same characteristics that heterosexual people have. Most people refer to psychotherapy when we talk about homosexuality. But, the fact is that it is not a kind of mental illness. You might be thinking about why we are talking about these myths. Well, here, we will be discussing the International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia. The core objective of this event is to raise awareness about LGBT rights violations. There are many organizations that conduct various events in this regard. People all over the world observe the International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia on 17th May.
Remember, Jesus would rather constantly shame gays than let orphans have a family.
If we analyse the present situation, we must admit the fact that the LGBTQ+ community is growing. They are wonderful and diverse human beings. Although the community is advancing, it does not mean that are not facing any problem. Yes, there are problems and struggles. Across generations and cultures, people have been holding a very misconception about them. The lack and fear of understanding the ecosystem of that community made their lives complicated. Now, in this International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia, people should come forward to raise awareness about the challenges and present situation of the LGBTQ+ community across the globe. People definitely should step forward to eliminate these problems.
Background Of International Day Against Homophobia And Transphobia
Being a heterosexual, most people might not be able to understand the present condition of the LGBTQ+ community. But, the fact is that they are facing a lot of problems. In the U.S. the misunderstanding and fear of this community lead to many deadly consequences. Bigotry and ignorance lead to marginalization and murder.
You might be surprised to know that the situation is more complicated and worse in Middle East countries, Russia and China. They even face problems to claim basic human rights. Now, it was in 2004 when the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia was set up in order to bring those people together and help them as much as possible. One of the core objectives of this day is to show the world strong solidarity. Apart from this, working to resolve the issues that this community is facing and bringing a positive social change in society are some other core objectives of this event.
It was 17th May in 1990 when World Health Organization made a good decision to declassify the concept of homosexuality as a kind of mental disorder.
