confidence among the gay community by coming out and helping raise public. –
(Steven Zhang.) We all knew that Gays are being discriminated in our society. The
fact that people today hate them because of being different on what they should act
based on their gender roles. But, it is the choices of people that make them reflect
as whom they are as a person. Gays are known to be different because on how they
should act based on their gender. They just want to be appreciated and love as who
they are. Therefore, they still get discriminated because on how they should act
based on their gender, the more they show how soft they are, how warm their
heart; they still get this hate that they don’t deserve. Gays are usually the person
who gives us joy and some fun when they with us or when we watch some shows of
them. They sometimes give us knowledge and lessons that we don’t know but we
learned from them. Having a gay friend or relative can be easier for us because they
are fun and easily to be with. In this society Lesbians, Gays, Bisexual or whatever
gender u are u will be hated and get discriminated by the people who are blinded
and didn’t see the worth of one another. Gays are known as a 2 nd clown of the
society, because on its way of delivering and showing their talents and sense of
