Zimbabwe and the LGBT community. The Zimbabwean government needs to address, and solve, the issues affecting the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community. These issues have been marred with contempt and neglect, particularly from our political leadership. As a nation, we have defined gender in such a narrow manner and this has given the individuals who do not consider themselves to be either male or female a lesser chance of truly expressing their individual i...

On November 2, 2014, the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution that "supports the independence and autonomy of sport as well as the mission of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in leading the Olympic Movement." The resolution ultimately separates the controversies of world politics with the active participation in sports - banning boycotts of the Olympic Games and requiring countries to fully participate in athletics. It also disallows the IOC from banning ant...

Imagine: you're sitting in first period when you realize that you really have to pee. Your teacher lets you out with a stern glance and a sharp "be back in five minutes." You walk down the hallway to the bathrooms and are faced with a dilemma: the signs depict a male bathroom and a female bathroom, but you know that you are neither truly male nor female, you are more of a mystical creature, undefined by the strict laws of gender put in place by society. Choosing randomly, you rush...

In a previous article, I wrote about AIDS, including three movies about AIDS, homosexuality and homophobia. One of them was ''The Normal Heart'', the autobiographical play by Larry Kramer which became a movie. When I wrote about it I mentioned my big love for it since it really inspired me. So please let me share a few more thoughts with you about this movie. In the photo you can see Mr.Ryan Murphy who many of you know from other works like "Glee" and "American Horror Story". H...

So many people hate LGTB people. But why? Why make someone's life a living hell because you are something. It's like picking on somebody and creating a world wide hate to someone that has brown hair.

Hello everyone.. My first reblog on VOY is going to be a recent post I read written by the blogging intern Maria (http://www.voicesofyouth.org/en/users/227642).The subject of the post is the rights of LGBT people. And to be honest with you, this post is to express my feelings about this subject. LGBT people are a community that has faced racism, discrimination and prejudice over the years. Even though we live in 2014, in the 21st century, many people still spread hate towards...

The recent wedding between a senior British diplomat to his male partner in Beijing has instigated a discussion over gay rights in China. You can read about it here. The couple's posting of their wedding on Chinese site Weibo was quickly shared more than 60,000 times. However many Chinese commentators took to Weibo and other social media websites to attack the couple. One said, “That country [Britain] is sick. It’s like the last days of Rome”. Another said that same-sex...

Globally, 35.3 million [32.2–38.8 million] people were living with HIV at the end of 2012. An estimated 0.8% of adults aged 15–49 years worldwide are living with HIV, althoug...

Dear girl, dear woman, I will begin with this; you are beautiful. You are gorgeous and no one can take this from you. Many times, women are not respected. From non-developed countries to sexism, many women are abused, both physically and mentally. As a result, they don't have confidence, they don't believe in themselves, their powers and their beauty and many fall into depression, or even worse, they commit suicide. Unfortunately, society has a big part of this tragedy. Even...

I regret not having written this sooner while the event was still fresh in my mind, but better late than never. On the 12th of July, I went to ‘Beyond Binary’, a talk hosted by national trans ally campaign, I Am You. This was my first exposure to the Malaysian trans community. I went with a friend and her friend. None of us knew anyone else there, not personally. Most of those in attendance seemed to know one another, though, which was overwhelming in the beginning. The eve...
