In the United States, LGBT indivuduals continue to be discriminated against in the workforce simply due to their sexual orientation. This is called Employment Discrimination. What is Employment discrimination? Employment discrimination refers to bias in hiring, promoting, termination and compensation based on sexual orientation. There are no federal laws prohibiting LGBT discrimination in private employment. In 34 states, it is legal to fire lesbian or gay employees, due to a disapproval or discovery of sexual orientation LGBT in the MEDIA Openly Gay Celebrities LGBT on TV We are not heterosexual, homosexual, nor nonsexual. We are simply sexual. Deal with it. - Amy Birdsong "When I was in the military they gave me a medal for killing two men and a discharge for loving one." - Leonard P. Matlovich "Why is it, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?" - Ernest Gaines "We can give our dogs a wedding and it'll make the local news as being 'cute', but two-loving people wedding is considered 'ugly' if they aren't man and woman." - Amy Birdsong L G B T Also, LGBT parents in many states are not legally recognized or do not have the same rights as heterosexual couples that adopt. If one parent dies, the second parent has no legal right to take custody or care for the child. The second parent without legal right to a child cannot legally register him/her for school. The second parent cannot make medical decisions for the child. Meaning, both parents have legal custody of the adopted child.

Transcript: There are many barriers to optimal health care Ex) Lack of culturally appropriate prevention services for many of the risk factors LGBT members face Young adults are at less risk than older LGBT members Social acceptance A form of Heterosexism, but much more radical. It is the system of negative discrimination against homosexuality and those who identify themselves as members of the LGBT community. Important Dates In todays society LGBT population is increasing significantly Because of the increasing population, society and the way of life is changing For instance: Recently, California has become the first state to mandate gay history into their curriculum. A disproportionately large portion of the LGBT community places a priority on spirituality Many churches have become accepting of LGBT members over time 164 in Virginia listed officially as LGBT friendly In the United States, Homosexuality was considered a sickness, sin, and criminal. Homosexuality was not even a term in American society until 1868. “Sodomy” was the term homosexual behavior fell under. Laws against “sodomy” came from England and could be punished by whipping, banishment, fines, and death. Family’s Role (Positive) Interviewee #2 LGBT Households Grew up lower-middle class with a large family. Currently middle class.

Always get As, go to an ivy league school Graduated from high school, college with a double major, and graduate school Personally holds education in high regard Roman Catholic upbringing, went to Catholic school Religion was the way of life, did not even think of an other option Removed herself from religion as she experimented with her sexual identity Currently not affiliated with any religion, does not consider herself spiritual Discrimination in the Current Era (Wilcox, 2003),(Ritter & O’Neill, 1989),(Couch, Mulcare, Pitts, Smith, and Mitchell, 2008), (Henrickson, 2007) Stonewall Riots The LGBT population is extremely diverse. Members of the community come from all walks of life, including people of all races, ethnicities, ages, socioeconomic status, and location Sexual orientation has been associated with multiple health threats LGBT members have unique health care needs Ex) The HIV/AIDS epidemic Fairly secular upbringing. Parents let them experience religion to ultimately choose for themselves. Became very religious in hopes prayer would cure him of his sexual orrientation Formation of his sexual identity made him anti-religion Realized he was discriminating against religion like others discriminated against the LGBT community Currently is a practicing budhist; he feels Budhism gives him "a set of tools to move to greater happiness" Estimated 4% of the U.S. Population Identifies with the LGBTQ lifestyle, That is nearly 9 Million people. Bisexuals make up 1.8% of the 4%, and are most commonly women. Number isn’t entirely accurate because there are probably many more out there who don’t know they are LGBTQ, haven’t come out, or are scared to come out. So the number is a rough estimate.

The Next night the angry patrons and crowd returned in greater numbers. Interviewee #1 The family serves as the immediate social network for people who are LGBT, and therefore families may, if not absolutely will have most effect on LGBT People who identify themselves as LGBT almost always hesitate to tell their parents of their sexual orientation, out of fear that they will not accept it An Australian Study showed that out of 1500 people who identified themselves as either gay or lesbian, 80 percent chose not to reveal their sexual orientation to their parents Parents often do not know how to respond to their child’s coming out, and are left confused, angered, and saddened as a result. Families can take one of two roles towards their LGBT children: positive or negative. #2 Pride Week, National Coming Out Day, Day of Silence, and Trans Day of Remembrance are all very important holidays to him Interviewee #1 They both have festivals and parades, Although they might be different themed. LGBT might have a Gay Pride festival or a Gay Pride Parade LGBT and main stream Americans will have the same themed parades as well like a thanksgiving
Transcript: LGBT 1924 The earliest gay rights organization was formed in Chicago, known as The Society for Human Rights In 1948, Alfred Kinsey published Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, revealing that homosexuality is more prevelant than previously believed. It wasn't until 1962 that Illinois became the first state in the US to decriminalize homosexual acts between consenting adults in private. The American Psychiatric Association removes homosexuality from its official list of mental disorders in 1973. On November 27, 1978, Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone were assassinated by Dan White, another San Francisco city supervisor, who had recently resigned and wanted his job back. Social Contribution to Society people are people, no matter who they love equality should be extended to all The gay rights movement works towards creating a more just society where everyone is treated equally under the law, receiving equal benefits, like marriage, health care, and more Legal Contribution to Society In 1993, the military’s “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy was instituted, permitting gays to serve in the military but banning homosexual activity Gay Marriage is now legal in 6 states and in Washington D.C Challenges The current ban on gay and lesbian marriages is an example of how the United States is legally discriminating against homosexuals upon the basis of a religious union that is also happens to be legally recognized by the government, and this very much seems to violate the divide between church and state. All couples that wish to “get married” should have to apply for a civil license or some form of legal status as partners regardless of whether or not a couple is heterosexual or homosexual. This legal status should be separate from any form of religious union, and then however religious institutions want to classify the aforementioned union between the individuals may be determined by them. Homosexual and heterosexual “marriages” should definitely have an equal status with heterosexual “marriages”, but religious institutions are very divided in regards to the homosexual marriage. My personal experience... During the 1800s, people who went to pubs were required to wear at least three pieces of gender-appropriate clothing. 1965 First Sexual Reassignment Surgery (SRS) in America performed at Johns Hopkins University In Europe there had been some procedures in the 30s and 40s, of varying success. Backlash against transgendered persons in the 1970s: Johns Hopkins replaced Dr. Joel Elkes with Dr. Paul McHugh – •Dr. John Meyer releases report of 50 transsexuals, declares surgery provides no benefits. •JHU SRS program shut down in 1979 1980 Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (3rd edition) first includes transsexualism as a medical condition – which makes it much easier to obtain treatment. (Changed to gender identity disorder for DSM IV) 2007 – gender identity language taken out of ENDA to make it more appealing – still fails.

Transcript: mental disorders In many parts of the world, members of the gay community continue to face severe discrimination including denial of employment and educational opportunities, as well as extra judicial violence, torture, detention, and even death penalty. Homophobia is hatred, negative attitudes/feelings or fear toward homosexuality or people identified in the LGBT community. Homophobia makes some people think that they are superior to homosexuals. South Africa As of 2011 six states and the District of Columbia have legalized same sex marriage. "Let them expres themselves, let them shine because their special" A parent should love their child no matter what their sexual preference is. A parent should be there for you, to help you and listen to you, they can't hate you when you did nothing wrong but find love with a someone the same same sex as you. There's nothing wrong with that! Homosexuality has existed long throughout history and enjoyed brief periods of acceptance, Though throughout most of its history, the practice of homosexuality has been banned, condemned and criminalized. Today there is still discrimination against the LGBT community. Homophobia "Its time for all the homophobic people to soften their hearts and accept that gay is part of our society and it will always be" although there were advancements on gay rights in the United States, in other parts of the world hate crimes against members of the LGBT community continues. In South Africa, they have a practice of "corrective rape"- in which they rape a lesbian to correct her behavior for being gay. They approved laws that allows same sex marriage to obtain many of the same rights and privileges enjoyed by heterosexual couples. Such as marriage tax benefits and heath insurance. Gays and lesbians lived underground and kept their sexual preference private. But now popular cities like Chicago are known for their gay communities! Stop Discrimination! Around the world, members of the LGBT community face a lot of challenges. They are ignored because of their sexual preference or not accepted in their own homes. Most parents do not accept their children being gay. They beat their children, they see them as less, they don't listen to what they have to say because they think being gay is wrong, and they kick them out of their homes. Gay Rights "everyone should be happy how ever they want to be happy" The Marriage Act In high school many gay students are bullied by their peers. They are made fun of, spit on and beaten up. The defense of Marriage Act, passed in 1996, defines marriage as the union between a man and a woman and that a spouse must be a person of the opposite sex.
