LGBT

Being different from others

LGBT is basically people who have the decision of being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transsexual. This is very important to learn about because many are being discriminated by having different kind of relations than the usual. I believe that this is a serious problem as well because they aren't treated the same as any other person. In 20 different countries they grant the right to gay marriage. In the United States & Mexico Gay marriage is Illegal.
