How To Fight Homosexual Discrimination
Understanding how to fight homosexual discrimination can be challenging. Homosexual discrimination is not something that should ever be ignored, and when left alone, it can turn into something much more serious, such as violence toward the homosexual population. There are many things that you can do to fight homosexual discrimination and still keep your day job.
- Support your homosexual friends. Don’t be a part of the problem. If you are homosexual, be proud of who you are. If you’re not, proudly spend time with your homosexual friends. Learn more about them and what they think of the issues and enjoy yourself as you do so.
- Attend meetings and events. Communities and college campuses across the country hold meetings, events and seminars dedicated to educating people about homosexual rights and why discrimination is wrong. Make a point to attend these events and become a part of your local community’s fight against homosexual discrimination.
- Encourage others to get involved. Bring friends to meetings, events, demonstrations and seminars, preferably friends that need education about homosexual discrimination and why it’s necessary to fight it. Sometimes people who discriminate are simply uneducated and have never known a homosexual person who is out of the closet. Involving these friends will help spread the word and fight homosexual discrimination.
- Report violent behavior or overt harassment. If you or something you know is being threatened, harassed or hurt in any way, you should report this behavior immediately. To fight homosexual discrimination, you need to stand up to those that are discriminating and make sure those types of behaviors do not continue.
- Write letters to your local politicians. In these letters, explain any homosexual discrimination that you are aware of and encourage them to take more of an active interest in this issue. Ask that all of your friends write letters, as well. The more a politician hears from the people, the more likely it that action will be taken to further the fight against homosexual discrimination.
