In these times, it can no longer be denied that gay people are already growing in numbers. As this happens, societies in the different parts of the globe have no choice but to accept the fact that they exist and that they should be respected and treated equally. Those societies that still tend to discriminate them are those that have not really matured or developed through time. It is true that society has not been very kind to gay people. If one just looks back at the history of the gay people’s movement, he would certainly cringe at the information about how they have been treated badly because of their sexual preferences. This definitely should not be the case because they have not done anything wrong to other people. Then again, their history would prove that they have actually been persecuted before, especially in the olden times when religious bigotry was at its height.
Gay people have contributed to the advance of culture. This is an undeniable fact. By this alone, they definitely have to be credited for it and not chastised. Their history would show that theirs was not just a movement of asserting their rights as individuals but was also a movement for cultural development. Such contribution to society has oftentimes been ignored though by many bigots in power primarily because they simply do not want to accept these people as part of society. However, gay history is continuing. This means that gay people are part of society’s evolution.
