Puerto Rico is very far from being a gay-friendly place and yet it would seem that even in this little place of the world, the things evolve and in the good sense. Indeed, for the first time, perhaps a lesbian will become judge within the Puerto Rico Supreme Court.

Exploring Gender: Standards of Beauty

standard beauty

There are different standards of beauty for men and women. When I talk about standards of beauty, I’m talking about the standards of how we take care of ourselves. Women are expected to be well groomed. They are expected to shave, exfoliate, bleach or remove any facial hair, have their hair brushed and highlighted, never have white or grey hair, have pressed clothes, put on makeup, and wear high heels. Women are expected to do these things in order for society to consider them normal and to be seen as attractive. Most women feel the need even to take a shower and put on nicer clothes to go to the grocery store.

There are so many important issues of equality facing the LGBTQ* community. Currently, the focus remains on the fight for marriage equality. Another important battle has been sitting in the background waiting to be pushed to the forefront: employment protections. According to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), only 16 states and DC have laws in place protecting workers from discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Another five states have protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation, but not gender identity (“Statewide…”).

New Attack Of Conservative Christians

In Anoka-Hennepin School District, conservative Christian parents ask teachers to teach about the "ex-homosexual" movement and "gay-related immune deficiency". They would like the policy prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity is not applied thinking it would open the schools to pro-homosexual teaching, so they want discriminations towards LGBTs continue.
