International Transgender Day of Visibility, March 31st


The International Transgender Day of Visibility is a very meaningful day because it is important to make people aware of topics and matters involving LGBT rights. As it says it in the name, the day is about visibility, empowerment and appreciation - because this is the first step to more understanding and acceptance. We're just trying to raise the awareness of discrimination. This event was founded by Rachel Crandall in 2009. She is a licensed psychotherapist specializing in transgender issues and an international transgender activist. But we are not here just to fight discrimination on this one day, this should happen everyday! Spread peace and love, always.

There are two users who already talked about this day, here are their posts:

Andy Warhol: A famous artist who was gay


His real name is Andrew Warhola but he "americanized" it to Andy Warhol. He was born on August 6, 1928 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was an american artist, movie maker and co-founder + one of the most important representatives of American Pop Art.

Here you can see an amazing drawing from my dear @lianaakobian who drew a picture from Andy Warhol

His career began in 1950 as a graphic designer and illustrator for fashion-, glossy- and lifestylemagazines and his career developed quickly. He was a music producer as well. He made a lot of paintings, designs for ads, movies, books and products.

Andy Warhol was an introverted, shy and had an opaque personality. He did not show his homosexuality in public, although, when asked, he did not deny it. By making (male) homosexuality one of the central points of his work throughout his life, he promoted the confrontation with this topic. [2]

Even if he did not live his sexuality out, he tried to support it in forms of art. He outed himself in a time that was difficult. And for that I respect and appreciate him.

Homosexual behavior in animals


Here I created a little chart with some animals where homo- or bisexual behavior has been observed:

BirdsMammalsOthers
Black swansDolphinsmisc. Insects
DucksBisonsvarious Spiders
PenguinsMonkeysDragonflies
VulturesElephantsBed bugs
PigeonsGiraffesLizards
LaysanalbatrosSheepsFruit flies

excerpt from wikipedia [3]

I don't think we often realize that not only we humans can feel this way. It is very interesting how often it occurs in the animal world but we belong there also to it. It's natural.

Posts from the community:


In this first episode of the magazine I would like to introduce the Post from @crazybgadventure about how it is to be part of the lgbt community in bulgaria.

Does the iron curtain still shroud the rainbow flag?

He answers questions in this post like:
Is it legal to be Gay in Bulgaria?
Is it legal to be Trans in Bulgaria?
Can LGBT people adopt in Bulgaria?
What is it like to be LGBT in Bulgaria?

But there is even more content in his post, so read it and leave a comment there!

How you could get featured:

So in the next Edition of this Magazine, one of the topics will be about curing homosexuality. It is quite shocking that this practice is still happening nowadays. I would like to feature some posts and therefore ask you who is interested to write a post about it. You could write from your own experiences or research. Please publish your articles on 18th April at the earliest, so that they are still voteable as soon as the second magazine goes online. The second edition of the magazine will be out in about two weeks. I've got the idea from @poetrybyjeremy so thank you so much!

Thanks to all supporters!

@prp-lgbt is primarily intended to curate and share contributions on all possible LGBT topics. At the moment there are not many LGBT related posts and I want to change that with this account. I want to reward people who deal with this topic and show others that you don't have to hide here on Steemit! Steemit is a wonderful platform and I want to spread even more love!

This was quite "light and easy" approach to homosexuality; you wrote about it like any other normal thing which is nice imo. By this I mean that it's refreshing to read things (animal chart and Warhol thingy) related to, or about this topic, which are not only concentrated on the discrimination side or negativeness around it. Of course those things aren't something that can just be ignored in general, but for change it's nice that the whole content isn't all about that. :)
