Dear Auntie, are there gay natives?
I appreciate this question and can’t help but wonder where you’re coming from and what exactly you’d like to know more about.
LGBTQ, or Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transsexual, Queer people are found in every single culture in every corner of the world. An issue that some LGBTQ people face is the culture they live in. Some cultures are more accepting, while others go to great length to diminish their existence and may even deny LGBTQ people their right to live their truth.
I appreciate your question because it tells me that you would like to know more and this I respect.
There is a lot of good and bad information around LGBTQ issues, so it’s up to you to think critically about them. If you want to learn more and I hope you do, here are a few resources you can check out:
