We're here. We're queer. Get used to it because it's the 21st century people! In this ever changing world we live in we need to stay informed, especially when learning to adapt in a culture and society that is rapidly changing. We live in a time where LGBTQ issues and topics are on the global forefront. The millennial generation, which consists of probably the most diverse and most accepting individuals of any generation yet, deserves a big shout out for their social engineering to get the LGBTQ word out via social media. Staying informed is imperative for our culture to progress and sustain. We must learn from history and use that to change today's problems. Eventually, minds and attitudes will change with the tide. Thanks to Twitter, many can use a 140-character social tool to spread their message to a global audience. Oftentimes, it's a more powerful tool than the news, as the mainstream news doesn't always report on issues such as transgender inequality, gay marriage, homophobia, or LGBTQ pop culture news. These LGBTQ groups are on the front line helping shape a new generation and defend LGBTQ rights worldwide. #LoveIsLove
As a divorced woman in my thirties, I have witnessed my fair share of injustices. For example, my husband stopped being attracted to me after I couldn’t lose the baby weight from having our son and I wasn’t awarded full custody because I was unemployed. I have bounced back from my divorce and I am comfortably well-off, with a good job, and liberated enough not to have to take alimony from my ex-husband. Even though those points in my life were some of the lowest, I find it difficult to complain about it. For most people around the world, marriage is something that can never be achieved, never mind getting a divorce.
Throughout history there has been a strict rule of thumb, men are men and women are women. But in the early 1970s, Rock and Roll musicians broke that rule when they dipped their toes into the glittery waters of glam androgyny. Traditionally, Rock has always been on the cutting edge of cool and has characteristically been a patriarchal dominant genre. That tradition changed with Glam Rock. It ushered in a new generation of people breaking social and sexual norms by embracing femininity.
One of the most annoying things in the world is hearing a word or phrase and realizing you have no clue what it means, especially when you're out with LGBTQ friends. Sometimes it can be frustrating to feel left out of the convo. As a gay man, I’ve used and heard slang that most heterosexuals wouldn’t recognize if it slapped them in the face. Believe me, I’ve had plenty of blank stares when I’ve used them. Even worse, too many people who don’t properly understand what the slang means use it in a negative way, often as a way to attack the LGBTQ community. But don’t fret, it’s time to get informed. With my help, you can be in the know when it comes to LGBTQ speak.
I watched three girls make out at an all-exclusive sexually charged event. And yes, I would watch it again.
