A movement is afoot...

We are witnessing a long overdue evolution of acceptance, a time where society has finally begun to embrace the differences among us and accept individuality.

In 2011, the UN Human Rights Council issueed its first ever report on the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, detailing how around the world people are killed or endure hate-motivated violence, torture, detention, criminalization and discrimination in jobs, health care and education because of their real or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity. On 26 September 2014 (about time!), 25 countries have united to condemn homophobic and transphobic violence.

In a world where even the Pope is urging the catholic church not to dismiss gay marriage, we are at a pivotal point in the history of humanity. Here's hoping the LGBT movement will soon join the ranks of anti-apartheid and feminism in the way it seeks to transform the dominant narrative.
