[Technicolor Musings] What LGBT Community?

The struggle to advance LGBT rights in the Philippines and around the world is often complicated by the "community" itself. There's a lot of hate that gets thrown around within aspects of the community with regard to how everyone "should" behave in line with their gender concepts, but of course the whole point of the community should be to embrace freedom and diversity.

We have a long way to go. But if we're going to get anywhere when it comes to gaining equality for ourselves, we'll need to first learn to accept one another and and stand together for what we deserve.

Be sure to think about what you're going to say to others before you actually say it. There's a lot of casual hate that gets thrown around and that just needs to stop.
