Transcript of Sociology : Subculture (LGBT)

subculture research:
the lgbt community

what is lgbt?
as most of you may know, the lgbt stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. this is the term used to describe the people's sexual orientation or gender identity.
dating back
before the sexual revolution of the 1960s, there was no common word to describe non-heterosexuality; the closest term is so called 'third gender', which dates back to around 1860s, but it never got wide acceptance in the United States.
norms and values
clothing, symbols and kikis!
in the lgbt community, they don't have a particular was of dressing up or a 'traditional' outfit. they are just like us in the end, so their clothing don't differ. however, there are certain symbols for each sub-group in the lgbt community and these are a few examples of them.

hope you enjoyed this presentation, and also gained some new knowledge about the lgbt community. :)
by cheryl cheah 10s
the first widely used term, 'homosexual', originally carried negative implications and was commonly replaced by 'homophile' during the 1950s-1960s. in the 1970s, the term 'gay' and 'lesbian' started to be used more subsequently.

each smaller group in this large community has struggled to fully develop its own identity and how to align itself with other gender and sexuality based communities. this conflict, unfortunately, still continues to this day.
according to some members of the lgbt community online, they all mentioned that the most important thing they value in the community is equality and respect. everybody is to treat everyone else like equals with acceptance and love, all is natural and there is nothing to hide. most of the morals revolve around no hate allowed and accepting people regardless of their sexual preferences or gender. however, there are no praticular norms coming from this community, just the regular norms everybody else in the region/country follows; sexual orientation doesn't change that.
this is the flag that represents the lgbt community, also known as the rainbow flag. it is commonly known as the lgbt pride flag, which was used during the social movements in the 1970s.
this is a symbol for the transgender, transsexual and transvestites community that incorporates elements from both the male and female symbols.
these are all the pride flags in the lgbt community.
in 1981, gay athletes were a hidden and marginalized community within the greater marginalized and beleaguered LGBT community. Being gay and being an athlete was an either-or proposition: Be a jock or be a queer. All of that changed when the athletes marched into Kezar Stadium in 1982.
the gay games occus every 4 years like the Olympics, and the most recent on one was in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, from August 9th to 16th this year.
youth pride
Youth pride, an extension of the gay pride and LGBTQI social movements, promotes equality amongst young members (usually above the age of consent) of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual or transgender, intersex and questioning (LGBTQI) community. The movement exists in many countries and focuses on festivals and parades, enabling many LGBTIQ youth to network, communicate, and celebrate their gender and sexual identities. Youth Pride organizers also point to the value in building community and supporting young people, since they are more likely to be bullied. Schools with a gay-straight alliance (GSA) handle discrimination and violence against LGBTQI youth better than schools without it; they develop community and coping skills, and give students a safe space to obtain health and safety information.
organisations and groups
The Trevor Project is an American non-profit organization founded in 1998 and the leading national organization focused on suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. Like I mentioned before, youth of the LGBTQI community usuallu get bullied a lot for their sexual orientation, and there are many NGOs that help and support them throughout their childhood to prevent suicidal thoughts or actions. Many celebrities raise awareness and also promote these organisations like Daniel Radcliffe (aka Harry Potter) and Tyler Oakley, a famous social media celebrity whom used YouTube as a platrm to raise funds for The Trevor Project.
today's era
with so many celebrities, pop stars, singers, actors and social media celebrities being in the lgbt community, it is starting to gain acceptance internationally. in the modern era today, technology and the internet plays a huge role when it comes to spreading awareness or inroducing a new type of culture. YouTubes use their platform to raise money for charity, singers writing and performing songs supporting the legalisation of gay marriage, authors writing books about lgbt relationships and the list goes on. the lgbt are slowly uniting with the rest of society, with some iconic symbols/people representing them.
