LGBTQ+ Discrimination in the US

Nhi Phan

Human rights have always been a serious issue in every community. There are countless cases of discrimination being reported year after year, and the targets are people from different backgrounds such as LGBTQ+ people, people of color, minorities, etc. Hearing stories of my LGBTQ+ friends, especially their experiences of being discriminated against, made me angry that there wasn’t more being done on this subject. What if they were your family, your children, your friends, your loved ones, who are being abused? How would you feel and respond to the situation? Just imagine that.

I decided to do research on this topic because I wanted to educate myself, as well as spread awareness to others. We are never going to stop talking about this until we are aware of what is happening and stop being ignorant. LGBTQ+ people deserve to be treated better. They have the right to be who they are, to love who they want, to be protected by the laws like normal people. Help spread awareness and educate yourself and your children to make a better world.
