In my fiction, one of the things I try to do is make my LGBT characters different from the typical formula we’re so used to seeing. I’m not even going to single out a publisher or Hollywood this time. It’s everywhere it seems. People who read this blog regularly know I remain on the sidelines, and always objective, when it comes to most issues…especially political issues…unlike most personal bloggers who blast and shout their opinions everywhere. And I always will remain objective. This is partly because I want to remain fair to my characters and partly because I want to respect the rights of all LGBT people, not just the loudest, the most visual, or the LGBT’s who garner the most attention in the media. For me not to remain objective would defeat the purpose of this blog, which is to be able to write about anything, from a distance, without getting emotionally involved one way or the other.
I’ve commented many times how I believe the B & T, in LGBT, is often left out of many conversations, as if bi-sexuals and transgenders don’t even exist. I even write about them in my books (American Star II has a strong transgender main character).
And now I’d like to comment on something I read recently happening in my own home town of New Hope, PA, where there’s a huge LGBT community. And, once again, I’m not weighing in with an opinion one way or the other. I’m just reporting the facts and informing people there are many facets to being an LGBT American, and most people are only getting the bare basics from the mainstream media. This was taken from a new facebook page I saw this evening. And I thought it was worth mentioning, to show the diversity within the LGBT community.
