Trying to find a place in society where they can live without other peoples' persecutions.
Use of separate letters in the acronym (LGBTIQ) to defign their sexuality/gender indentity.
They value a sense of belonging somewhere just like any individual who is part of a group or community. Bibliography 1. http://www.dosomehing.org/tipsandtools/background-gay-rights

Most of the community shares a goal of social acceptance.
Some protest against current laws and become activists for equal rights (same-sex marriage, adoption for same-sex couples, etc.)
ex- Gay Pride events, LGBT activism, Civil Rights The religious individuals of the community, like the religious groups all over the world, attend churches, synagogues, and other religious denominations.
Although, based on their lifestyle, LGBT members are only accepted at certain religious places that either have specific programs or are founded upon the LGBT community and their straight allies. Homosexuality as a whole actually dates back to ancient greece but has only recently (in the past 100 years) been acknowledged as the LGBTIQ community for equal rights and recognition purposes. As more and more media came out with magazines, movies, and books referencing gays and lesbians, a revolution had begun. In the early 1960s, the sexual revolution began to create more conflict between opposing views. As more law enforcement/ government got involved, the more riots broke out. It seems that with less argument and conflict, the less hostile people act. Although, as many know, you can't always be peaceful to be treated with respect, you have to fight to earn it. This led to even more innovations including: the Stonewall Riots (1969), White Night Riots (1979), the Human Rights Campaign Fund was founded (1980), the World Health Organization states that homosexuality is not an illness (1992), Don't Ask Don't Tell was implemented (1993), repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell (2010). History and Background: Many go through the process of finding their sexual identity and learn how to fit into society--learn who accepts them for who they are.
It is like any individual figuring out who they are throughout their life but instead it is the members of the LGBT community figuring out who they are attracted to and/or figuring out their gender identity. Language: Government: Social Organization: Religion: Education: Every subgroup of the LGBTIQ community uses different terms to identify the individuals among them:
Ex- Lesbian Subgroup
lipstick, femme, chapstick, and butch
Gay Subgroup
drag queen, homosexual, or just gay
Bisexual Subgroup
bi, bi-curious
Transgender Subgroup
cross dresser, transvestite, intersex
Queer Subgroup
questioning, queer Similar to subgroups in American history who fought for the civil rights for black people Similar to teenagers who identify with groups in school
ex-jocks, thespians, nerds, emos, goths Similar to individuals becoming affiliated with subgroups of a religion
ex-Christianity consists of Catholics, Presbyterians, Baptists, Methodists, etc. Similar to going through the process of life and figuring out your strengths and weaknesses...the things that make you, you. Similar to the other cultures and subcultures in America who use labels to identify themselves to be a part of that culture.
Ex- Being a hispanic, black, white, female, male, etc.
