For some, the fight for LGBT rights and equality has entered annoying territory. Especially for those who are homophobic to some degree, it just sounds like a childish argument for more ice cream after the kid just finished a bowl themselves. All over the world, there has been more concessions and allowance and acceptance for them, so what in the world are they complaining about now?
Well, for starters, they’re complaining about this.
Still, even in countries with the largest steps towards inclusion for LGBT people, there are still crimes of hate and homophobia perpetrated against members of the community. Like these two young girls in the US, and Priscila’s execution-style murder in Brazil (which, by the way, provides free sex-change surgery for trans citizens). So what about us, here in Trinidad & Tobago…
In case you missed it, homophobia still exists. And it’s still just as dangerous as ever. We can accept that and pretend it’s okay, or we can fight it. And I’m fighting it.
