How myths about gays begin is not clear. One thing is understandable: all myths about gays are just myths, and nothing more. They can be based on someone’s opinion, gossip, or any other unreliable resource. Some of them are very provocative, while others are neutral.
The situation in the United States towards LGBT representatives was always tense. The U.S. validated same-gender marriages only 5 years ago. In comparison, by that time 20 other countries had already done this, including Portugal, South Africa, Argentina, Spain, and others.
Barack Obama had not always been so positive toward the queer population. Even if he stated that he is not against same-sex couples, there were doubts about this topic. There is information that alludes to uncertainty about this question: whether he is against same-sex marriage or supports it.
The attitude to homosexual and lesbian relationships has been altered. Viewpoints about people with non-traditional orientation have been changed as well. Religion is no exception.
Nowadays, non-heterosexual people have the same rights as straight people in the USA. They can marry without fear that society will judge them. If they have a child, its rights will be protected by the local laws. There are not many countries that protect people belonging to the LGBTQ+ community. There’s scarcely anything else outside of Europe and the United States.
On October 8th, the whole world takes a day to celebrate lesbians and their culture. It is called International Lesbian Day. Some say that this annual tradition started in 1980 after a Lesbian Day March; others are convinced that it appeared for the first time in 1990. Despite the lack of accurate information about the formation of this LGBTQ+ holiday, everyone agrees on the importance of it.
In ancient times, it was easy to find same-sex relations in Rome. And it was acceptable as a reflection of Roman-self of soldiers.
The first marches in the world took place half a century ago in cities such as Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, as well as in San Francisco. The now widespread movement arose in 1969 during the protests against the riots in Stonewall.
Even before the American and the French revolution introduced the concept of governmentally protected basic human rights, there was a weirdly equal society. As you’ve guessed, it’s pirates. In the midst of human rights hell (17th century), they had such luxuries as gay marriages and even something we’d now call health insurance.
