Education of Us By Us & For Us


The main thing that we, THE GLBTQ COMMUNITY, must keep in mind is that we must educate ourselves about ourselves be for we can educate others about us. There are people who dont know, understand and dare I say respect our TRANS brothers and sisters as well as other parts of the GLBTQ community at large. COMING SOON will be one solution that I have in mind, I will focus on the education of US BY US AND FOR US! NO, IT will NOT be the one and for all fix to the issues that we face, BUT IT HAS TO START SOMEWHERE.

WHY IS HIV STILL STIGMATIZED? WE NEED AN HIV 101 BTW... AND NOT JUST TESTING AND COUNSELING...WE NEED TO MAKE THIS NOT SO TABOO
WHY DO WE MISGENDER TRANS PERSONS AND THEN GET MAD WHEN THEY LEAVE OUR COMMUNITY?
WHY ARE GAYS AND LESBIANS SO SEPARATED IN MANY CASES?

WHATS UP WITH THE SEGREGATION ALONG RACE AND ETHNIC LINES IN OUR COMMUNITY?
WHY DO WE NOT STAND UP FOR OUR RIGHTS?
WHY DO WE SIT IN CERTAIN PLACES OF WORSHIP AND ALLOW CLERGY TO PAINT US AS EVIL?
AND FOR SOME OF US, WHY ARE WE ONLY GAY WHEN ITS CONVENIENT, LOOK DOWN ON OTHERS WHO FIGHT WHILE YOU BENEFIT FROM THE WORK THAT THEY FOUGHT FOR?
These are just some of the question that we need to ask and challenge ourselves with.
