LGBT

Type : Film Genre
LGBT is an initialism that collectively refers to the "lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender" community. In use since the 1990s, the term "LGBT" is an adaptation of the initialism "LGB", which itself started replacing the phrase "gay community" beginning in the mid-to-late 1980s, which many within the community in question felt did not accurately represent all those to whom it referred.

Nina S - Dumbest things gay people hear!
So my best friend happens to be gay, not that that has anything to do with anything, least of all our friendship. But in order to understand him better I asked him what some of the dumbest things he ever got to hear from so called well meaning yet ignorant people out there. Being gay he said was like being an animal in a cage with everyone pointing at the weirdo on the other side. What he set about telling me opened my eyes to many of the ways we tend to try and push people into familiar boxes, more »

Shailendra Dhodi - How would you deal with a gay colleague?

After Supreme Court's shocking ruling which says, 'Gay Sex is a crime', the entire LGBT community in India is in mourning. So now my point is, will the government come out in full support of the LGBT community, even though LGBT community constitutes more »
