From helping them come out of the closet to normalising their issues, celebrities talk about how it’s high time the LGBTQI community stops facing discrimination.
June is celebrated as the Pride month for the LGBT community. I think it's a very nice initiative and anyone can join in this celebration if you want to raise awareness related to the problems they usually face or have already faced. We all should spread this awareness amongst everybody. These days through social media people of these communities are coming out of the closet and they are more comfortable in being who they are. Which is a very good thing. No matter you are a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender no matter what we are humans and we all have equal rights. I think those people should also get their rights and I really want to step in this time and spread awareness. These people are not different from us. They have already faced a lot of problems but now thankfully people have also started to accept the fact that they are no different than us. They are slowly and steadily getting their rights in society and in the community and I'm very happy to see this. I literally want to tell everyone that do your little bit whatever you can for any of these people. Make them feel comfortable in their skin.
It is good to know that Pride month is going on. People are very less judgmental compared to before about LGBTQ community. Live and let live should be the mindset. Social media has also contributed in making people express themselves fearlessly. I'm happy that the world is changing in both mindset and attitude.
Awareness about the LGBTQ community has been simplified with social media. Social media has its own plus and minus. It can also be used in a positive way. We have become far more accepting and less judgemental about people as well as various communities. Everyone has the right to live peacefully and accept themselves as they are.
Pride month is going on in the mindset and perception we have evolved and become accepting as a society. No one should be judged. Social media is a good medium for people to express their views. A lot of films and OTT content is also focusing on LGBTQ community. So, awareness and understanding is far better than before. Every community can coexist and live.
Social media has become common in the last 2-3 years and the reach on the internet has increased because of information travelling here and their people have got to know more about LGBTQ community. People have now realised they also have their human rights and everybody should be allowed to live the way they want to live. Social media has played an important role. Sometimes what happens is we want to be heard. We want people to listen to us but we don't get the platform, we don't get the audience so that we can share our bits and parts. But since social media is there everybody has a direct way to connect to the audience. Before this, people were dependent on journalists, channels and reporters for their stories to come out.
LGBTQI community has been suffering from social injustice for the past many decades. Now people from this community are having such a great level of freedom and social acceptance. It is wonderful to see social media as its part for social reforms but definitely because of social media a lot of people are coming out of their closet and sharing their emotions with the world. Definitely cinema has played a great role in this social reform. A lot of films have been made on this topic. Mira Nair made a film named Fire which is an amazing film. Great films have been made. Both cinema and social media have helped a lot of people in this community.
