Why this petition matters


LGBT  need to be respected and included in their faith communities, just as they need respect and acceptance in wider society.

Equality and freedom from discrimination are fundamental human rights that belong to everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or sex characteristics.However, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex (LGBTI) people in the Asia Pacific region can experience shocking levels of violence, harassment and discrimination.This includes extra-judicial killing, torture, rape, arbitrary detention, unfair trials and, in the case of women, forced pregnancy and forced marriage. They face exclusion and discrimination in relation to work, education and accessing health and housing services.People call them “sinners” or “disgusting.” Gays should not be discriminated against. They are regular people that should be respected and treated just like others. Gays do not intend to harm or bother others, but people really act like they do.


The LGBTQ community already goes through plenty struggles just by being gay. They do not need society criticizing them. It just adds on to the struggles and obstacles they face. A lot LGBTQ members are just looking for acceptance. Being discriminated will worsen their situation and will eventually just drop their self-esteem. That can all lead to depression, and no one wants that.


A major conflict that the LGBTQ has to face is religion. A lot of religious people totally despise gays or believe that being gay is against God. Some really religious people assume the whole LGBTQ community is filled with people who are against God, just because they like the same gender. Nobody can completely comprehend the struggles LGBTQ community goes through. Bullies should put themselves in the shoes of the LGBTQ community. The people who discriminate and bully people in the LGBTQ community would hate to be bullied and to be discriminated by others. Discrimination against gays may never end, but society should not treat them as if they are not human, or as if they bad people. Little children see all of this too, therefore, they think it is right to disrespect them, bully them and make fun of them. That is what contributes to the LGBTQ community feeling rejected, left out, and unloved. No one should discriminate.


 Everyone should have respect towards them. The future generations will also consist of people in the LGBTQ community. If children grow up thinking that being gay is not okay they’ll be unsatisfied with themselves and will probably be depressed for years. Society has got begin respecting them. Because after all, everyone is a human.
