The day when homosexuality was removed from the International Classification of Diseases by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 17th May 1990 was the day when LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender) rights were upheld by the world. Even though this happened twenty three years ago, there are still rejections against LGBT groups. Reality has said so. In my country of Indonesia, there are still many LGBT groups who are mocked and get rejected by society. I was born in a family...

They aren't too many people who identify as LGBT in Nigeria. But we have been able to parry the disparities we have. Life and the circumstances it dictates has curbed the desire of man to either appreciate or pulverize its contributions. Many a time, I have tried to understand why there's no equality between youths of different sexual orientation and society. Some say, these youths have violated the laws of nature and existence but from what I have figured out, it's bluntly a choice. With choice...

Young people from marginalized and disadvantaged groups often experience exclusion and disrespect. To ensure the rights of young people, society must respect and be inclusive of all, regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, marital status, ethnic origin, religion, disability or age. Jeremy (Xa Tấn Chương), is a 20-year-old Vietnamese youth delegate to the World Conference on Youth 2014. He is currently studying Business English in Ho Chi Minh City, where he also wor...

An inspiring video. I think it speaks for those transgenders who are often being put down or opressed. There is more to them that it looks like. Do share your insights!

First of all, let me start by congratulating Oregon and Pennsylvania for struck down the ban on marriage equality. They did a great job on making the best decision for our future generation. Things like this make me believe that one day full equality will be achieved. I have hope that one day we all will be able to share the joy of acceptance and be happy without prejudices and judgements. I remember back when I was still in school, I had a gay friend. He was constantly bullied...

What is love? Why is it so hard to be loved? These questions rushed into my mind a few years ago. What I thought to be a simple question to be answered but instead it was a life changing experienced. It was a journey that changed my perspective towards life and shine a light on love. It all began when I was just a little boy. My sisters love to watch dramas on television every day. I vividly remember a drama that aired every night and they would watch it religiously. The main t...

I cannot speak of the number of deaths or give an estimation of the total number of youths that have lost their lives due to certain issues linked to a rapid desire for change, wealth and fame. But, one thing remains clear: The majority of deaths have occurred due to an abrupt change in the ramifications of socioeconomic standards altered by political thugs. This unwanted adjustment has made the need for man in a do or die affair. From the unlawful demand for peace and harmony youths have lost t...
