USA says yes to same sex marriage

The Supreme Court of the USA on June 2015 decided that countries cannot say no to same sex couple marriages. This is ranked as the biggest win of the LGBT community so we decided to read some articles circulating the internet yesterday, in the US and many other places.

After reading the material we discussed how this is a very sensitive subject, especially when we are faced with different stereotypes in societies, against the LGBT community. Same sex marriage is a practice present in many developed societies.

A participant expressed how homosexual couples who live together usually present themselves as friends, because it’s the only way to live with their partner. If they come out, we are sure that they will be faced with discrimination and physical violence. 

 

We thank all the participants.
