It is so nice to be yourself with people as long as they don’t consider you different. For many people there comes a time in life when you say «I’m not the person you think I am». For example, when you watch a movie seeing two “straight” people who are engaged and you realize that that scenario is not part of your world. You are part of the LGBTQ + community and you decide to do a coming out but the reactions are not quite what you expected.
There are those who throw you out of the house because they think you are sick, while others think that it is only a phase you are going through. Some people think that it is a trend and others say that it is against nature. This types of reactions are known as homophobia. An example of homophobia is when you are with your children and you change the channel because there is an episode where two men or two girls are in intimacy and the parents think that it is not moral.
This is Camilla’s story: she is a 23-year-old lesbian girl who wakes up one morning to go to work and finds her car distroyed by her neighbors just because she is lesbian. Do you think that this reaction is acceptable?
Homosexuality was removed from the list of psychiatric diseases. Yet there are about 74 countries in the world where it is illegal to have a relationship with someone of the same gender, for example in Afghanistan there is the death penalty. I hope there will be an important turning point concerning the rights of LGBT.
