Maybe us in the LBGT community should be doing more to fight for our rights and equality before asking others.
The number of gay people murdered or attacked is shameful – I don’t see us on the street protesting and demanding something be done.
I went to the kiss-in event and there were not more than 10 couples. Me thinking “What s the point?” I m tired to go to events and protests were the turn out is almost invisible. Many gay people who complain do nothing apart from moaning here. I probably never go to another event or protest!!!!
And then you’ll be just like the people you complain about.
why not a similar campaign against transphobia
@poeticlicense It’s included in this apparently. Though they didn’t change the acronym IDAHO, and no-one is mentioning it. Wikipedia says that it concentrated on Transphobia in 2009.
Well said Lee (or is it Gav?). Our apathy isn’t healthy for our rights. I know some think we don’t have anything left to protest against, but aside from that being very debatable, if we sit quietly on the side-lines, the homophobes and homophobic religious groups are not sitting by as well, they’ll be pushing for legislation and actions against LGBT people and things will slip back to a bad place for us. We can’t afford apathy.
