After meeting up with our teacher we have learnt about LBGT.- We had to research on the “new” term “LGBT community “- It helped us to understand that they would find offensive to be called homosexualsLGBT - refers to "lesbian, gay, bisexual, andtransgender" people
LGBT Flag • Before the sexual revolution of the 1960s, they didn’t know how to call the non-heterosexuality; so in that time the closest term they could find was, "third gender“ • The term “homosexual” were first This is a documentary that talks about the used in 1950s, this term had a negative struggle that Nepal people have to go connotations, and tended to be through because they choose to be LGBT replaced by homophile. Then in the Nepals Third Gender 1970s the term gay and lesbian became more used and accepted.• People started to use the term LGBT in 1988 in United of States, but not until the 1990s did it become common to speak of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people with equal respect within the movement. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Po7MRrRsIYY
• This is a page on Facebook a social network that shows events, meeting, photos and updates on what happens throughout every month.• This page is specific for the area of BARNET but they have one for each borough of London which shows us that the LGBT Community is wide spread-out.
When we were researching we foundthat some university support the LGBTcommunity, and here are some of them :
After learning the term “LGBT” we got curious to know if people knew what does this term stands for. Therefore we went to the roads of London to ask people….Do you know what LGBT stands for? We interviewed some people, and here is a short videos to show that most of Questionnaire Results them didn’t know what LGBT stands for: 15% Yes 85% No It’s also interesting to know that nearly all of out target audience don’t know about LGBT so our documentary will be very informative to them.
This table shows very well when the United Kingdom acceptedLGBT. However its important to state that not longer ago (2005) homosexuals were not recognised, and they count have relationships.
Here is a research of some countries that accept LGBT. However some countries didn’twant to support and accept marriages and relationships, but now it’s a human right to be free to practise your sexuality. Marriage Recognized/ not Civil unions and Unregistered performed registered cohabitation partnerships Belgium Aruba (Netherlands only) Andorra Australia Argentina Curracao (Netherlands only) Austria Croatia Canada Israel Brazil Israel Netherlands Mexico: all states (Mexico City Colombia only) Iceland Sint Maarten (Netherlands Czech Republic only) Norway United States: CA (conditional) Denmark South Africa Ecuador Spain Finland Sweden France Portugal Germany United Kingdom
- Now we know what LGBT stands for- We realised that not everyone know about the LGBT community- We also know countries that accept marriages, relationships etc- We didn’t know that not longer ago LGBT wasn’t accepted • And now everything that we learned will help us to develop ideas for our documentary.
