What the world needs

Homophobia? Or Immaturity?


When I was in middle school I was outed as bisexual. Once the whole school had found out, I was no longer allowed in the locker room to change for gym class.

The girls that used the gym locker room didn’t want me in there with them because they were scared.

The only reason I was ever allowed back in that locker room was because my friend stood up for me. People like my friend are what the world needs more of.

It doesn’t need people who are scared of change. It doesn’t need people who are like the girls in that locker room who discriminate against people just because of their sexual orientation.

The world has struggled to accept the LGBTQ+ for decades, eras even. It is the 21st century and people still get upset or freaked out because a guy likes another guy, or because a girl likes another girl.



The LGBTQ+ community has been fighting for equality for a long time and I think it's time for people to get over their lifestyle, and accept something new. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.
