Why support LGBTQs?
Why should I support gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people?

All people, including our gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender loved ones deserve love, support and full acceptance in society. Because the LBGTQ community still faces discrimination in today’s society, many of them think they have no choice but to struggle with their sexual orientation alone. The common myths and stereotypes of gay people do not help. When someone comes out, they are taking a risk. They especially fear the effect on the ones they love the most, their family members and friends. Coming out takes courage and honesty. Be supportive if someone comes out to you. That person deserves friendship, love, support and respect, as all humans do.
