Exploring the "L" in LGBT
In a world where the assumed relationship standard includes a man and a woman, it can be especially difficult for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer individuals to be themselves. Today, with as few as 16 countries around the world recognizing gay marriage—plus 19 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and several Mexican municipalities—equal recognition of same-sex unions is still a fight.
And though both gay and straight couples share many of the same aspirations, each person in the LGBT-spectrum experiences a unique viewpoint and offers a distinctive voice. Explore the sometimes scary issue of discovering your sexuality, letting go of societal expectations and living life proudly as a lesbian.
