LGBT is a community,

Sometimes referred to as LGBTQ (Q meaning queer).
Queer is a term used to describe a non-straight person.
Queer can have derogatory connotations, which is why LGBTQ is used less often as LGBT.
LGBT-related issues include
homophobia
and
same-sex marriage
WHAT IS THE LGBT?
According to Pew Research:
15% find homosexuality morally unacceptable.
30% find homosexuality as morally acceptable
50% find homosexuality is not a moral issue.
WHAT DO CANADIANS SAY?
From the 40 countries (from all six habitable continents) Pew Research did their survey on:
59% find homosexuality morally unacceptable
20% find homosexuality morally acceptable
13% find homosexuality is not a moral issue
What Does The Rest of The World Say?
LGBT rights vary throughout the world.
Legality of homosexuality and same-sex marriage also vary worldwide.
Homosexuality is legal in many countries (e.g., Canada), yet remained outlawed in many other countries (e.g., Nigeria) and even punishable by death in some countries (e.g., Iran)
Not all countries that legalized homosexuality legalized same-sex marriage. Even in tolerant countries like Canada, the LGBT community continues to face discrimination.
TOLERANCE VARIES WITHIN SOME COUNTRIES
Homosexuality legalized in the United States in 2003.
Homosexuality was legalized in Australia
in 1994.

HOMOPHOBIA

the existence of fear and hatred of homosexuality existing in one's own mind (E.g., behaving in a way to avoid being called a queer.)
Interpersonal homophobia:
personal homophobic actions and speech. Used for harming the LGBTQ community and insulting straight people. (E.g., calling someone a "f***ot"
Institutional homophobia:
discrimination against the LGBTQ community by governments, businesses, other organizations. (E.g., Russia's anti-gay propaganda laws.)
Homophobia Is An Ongoing Problem

Homosexuality and Same-Sex Marriage Are Still Controversial
SAME-SEX MARRIAGE EQUALITY AD
GAY RIGHTS QUOTES
"It's two people that are in love with one another. What's the issue?" –
Janet Jackson
“Marriage is a civil right. If you don’t want gay people to marry in your church, good for you. But you can’t say they can’t marry in your city.”
–Julian Bond.
“New Rule: Gay marriage won't lead to dog marriage…When women got the right to vote, it didn't lead to hamsters voting. No court has extended the equal protection clause to salmon. And for the record, all marriages are “same sex” marriages. You get married, and every night, it's the same sex.”-
Bill Maher
"Gay rights are human rights."
-Hillary Clinton
Catholic Perspective
The Catholic Church opposes gay marriage and the social acceptance of homosexuality and same-sex relationships
Teaches that homosexual persons deserve respect, justice and pastoral care
In the Bible, God created a partner for Adam, which was Eve.
Sexual intimacy between a man and a woman is the normal method of female bonding (emotionally and physically).
If God had intended the human race to be fulfilled through both heterosexual and homosexual marriage, he would have designed our bodies to allow reproduction through both.
ACTIVITY!
Groups of 3-4 people
Each group will get a case study to act out as a skit
No longer than 30 seconds
5-10 minutes to prepare
Good luck! :)




Use inclusive language. Avoid derogatory slurs.
Avoid using the word "gay" to insult someone or at something you don't like.
Accepting that people of the LGBT community are the same as everyone else.
Make same-sex marriage ordinary and not an oddity.
