Being LGBTI+ is not a big deal. Discrimination is.
Can you imagine the threat of verbal or even physical harm because of who you are and how you live your life? Can you imagine being afraid to walk down the street hand-in-hand with your partner or the one you love out of fear of harassment?
This is an unfortunate reality that many people face on a daily basis. Homophobia and transphobia have a profound impact on the lives of many lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people around the world. A person’s sexual orientation and gender identity and expression are not matters for public debate because quite frankly a person’s sexual orientation and gender identity is none of your business!
