LGBT+ Equality Book

LGBT+ Equality Book I am an 18-year-old studying Applied Computing in the UK. And I have decided to write a book about LGBT+ Equality. I'm addicted to IRN BRU and cupcakes, and like to sleep. A lot.

I will be reblogging things I find interesting, useful, and informative, as well as posting snippets of my book to be reviewed by you guys. And I will be asking for your stories, opinions, thoughts, feelings, anything to add (submit here).

You guys can find me on Facebook (LGBTQ Equality) and Twitter (@MeganSime) if you like.

**WARNING** Some material may be triggering or offensive to some, I'll tag what I think I need to but if I miss or get something wrong please let me know and I'll alter it.

So, my first exam is in an hour - EEEEEK!!! Wish me luck, babes, see you on the other side!

2014 — just two months in, and already looking like one of the most monumental years in history for gay rights.

Celebrities who’ve come out so far this year: Actress Ellen Page, football player Michael Sam, model Cara Delevingne, actress & screenwriter Michelle Rodriguez, NBC anchor Robin Roberts, and Olympic diver Tom Daley just to name a few.

Love is love. Things are getting better.

All together now: Marriage equality is good for our health

Reblogged from gaywrites

gaywrites:

Yet another medical journal has confirmed that legal marriage equality improves life for LGBT people in many ways - including physical and mental health.

According to an article published recently in The New England Journal of Medicine, there are multiple ways same-sex marriage can be good for us. A huge one is access to a spouse’s health care benefits, often only available after marriage. Previous studies have also found that the stigma and discrimination that result from anti-gay laws have negative health effects, and LGBT folks become noticeably healthier when laws are inclusive. 

The Institute of Medicine’s 2011 report about LGBT health indicated that LGBT people suffer greater “physical and mental health outcomes” than their heterosexual and cisgender counterparts, primarily because of being a part of “a stigmatized minority group.” Because of this, access to health care is all the more imperative.

"LGBT people living in states that ban same-sex marriage, for instance," the Journal article reads, “are more likely than their counterparts in other states to report symptoms of depression, anxiety, and alcohol use disorder.”

Once again, virtually none of this information is surprising, but it’s useful to know as we continue arguing for marriage equality and other LGBT-inclusive laws, and all of the ways they can help us.
