We make many seemingly insignificant decisions in everyday life that we often take for granted, but those small decisions can contribute substantially to improving the lives of LBTs.
We can support or join organizations that help strengthen LBTs as a marginalized sector. If no such organization exists in our area, we can form small support groups composed of our friends and neighbors. If organizing a group is not something that we are prepared to do just yet, we can also try to learn more about LBT issues by reading about sexual orientation and gender in newspapers, magazines or books in the nearest bookstore, or even in the Internet.
For LBTs, we can make a big difference by striving to excel in school or at work and by having faith and confidence in ourselves. Caring for and loving ourselves is a huge step in pushing for our human rights as LBTs. We can do this by staying away from unhealthy habits such as excessive drinking, drugs, gambling, and/or fighting with, badmouthing or acting negatively towards each other.
