Why are LGBTI rights important?

Why are LGBTI rights important? Everyone should be able to feel proud of who they are and who they love. We all have the right to express ourselves freely. Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (which set out for the first time the rights we’re all entitled to) protects everyone’s right to express themselves freely. Bringing an end to homophobia and transphobia will save lives.  Anti-LGBTI harassment puts LGBTI identifying people at a...

RFGN | The Secret Contribution of Homosexuals in Homophobia

As homosexuals emerged as a community big enough to be recognized as a community, homophobia has also taken a toll. It appears to be diminishing slowly, but it still has a long way to go. Homosexuals appeared as "different" beings. It is in human nature to take some time to accept the change. Human beings are naturally designed to fear something they know very little about. The term used for it is "the unchartered territory."...

RFGN | How to stand together against Homophobia

In many cultures, being anything other than heterosexual is looked down on because it goes against their morals. The traditionalist approach to life has narrowed down their vision, and they are unable to accept people who are different. That is the same case for identities other than sexuality, such as race or ethnicity. Rainbow Fellowship believes in the acceptance of all people and wishes to end homophobia, a creation that has allowed people to abuse...
