The LGBTQ+ community is a diverse and ever-changing group of people with varying experiences and needs. It is important to remember that all people, regardless of sexual orientation, deserve to live in a world that respects their identity and supports their well-being.
The LGBTQ+ community has faced many challenges in the past, but there has been significant progress in recent years. The following are some of the ways in which the world has become more welcoming for LGBTQ+ individuals:
LGBTQ+ youth are more likely to be out than ever before; according to a study from the Centers for Disease Control, nearly half of LGBT youth are out at school.
LGBTQ+ individuals are increasingly accepted by mainstream society; as public opinion shifts towards greater acceptance, so too does legislation.
