Thesis: The LGTBQ community is forced to live and act in a different way because of the lack of acceptance the receive as well as hateful comments. In todays society, it is hard to express how you feel especially if you are a member of the LGTBQ community because of reasons like catholic church and social normality’s.
Audience: My audience is geared toward LGTBQ community, in efforts to help them branch out and be who they truly are. Catholic church members as well as older people because they have been brain washed that relationships and gender stereotypes can only be correct if it is done one way.
Reason: The reason I chose this topic is because i’ve worked with this topic before and try and make a change.
Sources: The two sources I plan on using are Toxic masculinity and YouTube LGTBQ #ProudToBe campaign. Toxic masculinity shows how we are brought up to be. Basically from birth we are all taught that boys like girl, boys like blue and many other examples of stereotypical ways of gender. The YouTube video is about the LGTBQ community and their feelings as well as success stories. These both will show how it is hard to express who you really are because of social norms.
Counter image: A counter image I can potentially do is interviewing people from different ages and religious beliefs and see how they view this topic. After their responses will be positive and ideally how society could be.
