#loveislove Hashtag Activism

A huge part of America today is supporting our LGBTQ community. In 2015 The Supreme Court declared that same sex marriage would be legal in all 50 states; June 12, 2016 there was a shooting in Orlando at a gay nightclub killing 49 people and injuring others. Ever since then #loveislove is growing. I believe it is important to voice how we feel, I’m sure many of us know personally someone who is gay, of color, etc and we see them as normal people, but this world is full of people who are judgemental towards the LGBTQ community and people of color. To think that any one apart of this world has to suffer with comments or looks people give them just because they happen to be attracted to the same sex or is of color is unimaginable. Anyone in the world deserves to be happy whether they like the opposite sex, the same sex, want to change their sex, are of color or anything beyond that. The people apart of the LGBTQ community and of color are people just as we are, their sexual interests, want to change their sex, or of color doesn’t make them any different than straight people, or white people. Humans are humans, I am me and you are you, our orientation; sex, race, color, religion, etc does not define us and how we treat each other.

Though America has changed dramatically since then others fear the law of same sex marriage will be repealed, worrying thousands. With Donald Trump as President there are many things that could come into play, we know he is expressive about the fact that he doesn’t like same sex marriage, and neither does the Vice President Mike Pence. It is impossible to know what could happen in the future, but we all need to stand up for each other and support the ones who are worried, or afraid for their own life because of what could change their every day life. This world has come to accept the LGBTQ community as well as people of different race, or religion and we can’t back down on the support for everyone these changes could apply to. Everyone deserves to be happy and this is what it takes for them, so we need to share and express our happiness for them and their own rights and fight for their happiness and rights to continue.
