People thrive off of human interaction. No matter if you’re a social butterfly or a hermit who dreams of living with 1,000 cats (like me), we all need some social interaction at some point or another.
In Hong Kong, a psychiatrist has just been engaged to "re-wire" homosexuals as a trainer for its social welfare staff.
A friend recently suggested I write about hate. It’s such a hard topic, something we as LGBTQ people encounter on an almost daily basis. The level of hate one encounters, though, varies by location. Places with laws protecting the community such as California and much of the Northeast tend to be more accepting. People also vary in their acceptance of the community based on their level of education (generally those who have experienced higher education are less likely to harbor prejudice), their religious beliefs, and their social class.
