Explanation : LGBTQ

How do you feel about the LGBTQ commuinty? Nearly everyday humans question themselves about what they identify with. The meaning of LGBTQ is lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. Q is for those who are questioning themselves, on what they identify with. Do you know the colours of their new flag?

Just imagine if you were LGBT, wouldn't you want respect from your family and friends? So why not show respect towards those who are LGBT? People in the 1990's - now, have gained a lo,t of respect for those who are lgbt. Showing them the respect they need will make them feel more self - confident.

Did you know that over 11 million people in the world are LGBT? Being understanding (towards their feelings) and accepting (understanding how they feel) is showing Empathy. Example: understanding someone and sharing feelings with one another can lift a lot of weight off both of your guys shoulders.

Not much people today can show tolerance. There are two sides (disliking things and agreeing with things). In my opinion i think we should be showing tolerance to those people that are still figuring out their identify, which does that a lot of time.. We all have different opinions about things.

I have finally come to my conclusion. I talked about many things about the LGBTQ community, but If you were still wondering about the meaning of the LGBTQ colours on the flag is: Red means life, Orange means healing, Yellow means sunshine, Green means nature, Blue means harmony and Violet means spirit.

This week during Writing, LS2 (yr 7 and yr 8) have created a explanation of our choice that showed Respect, Empathy, Tolerance or something else of our choice.  I decided to go with LGBTQ for my explanation because it was really easy to go with Respect, Empathy and Tolerance. In the beginning we had 10 minutes of planning, 40 minutes of writing and a few minutes of drafting our work. The next day in the morning block we all had some time to proof read our writing.
