Here is a quick review of the entire movement of LGBT from the day one till now.

Initial History

The people of the LGBT community are still struggling for their rights and recognition in the society. The entire LGBTs movement was started for their equal rights in the society. The movement was anabsolute political ideology and known as the biggest social movements. The movement has begun to get social equity in 1988 in the U.S.

After years of discrimination and insignificance, the LGBT community has started the movement for their rights. Among most major concerns of the movement was same-sex marriage. When we compare the United States with other countries, it is more sociable to this community. Still, that hypothetical philosophy is controlling the mind of people.

21st-Century and current circumstances of the Movement

With so many roller coaster rides, the entire face of this social equity movement has changed so much. It was begun in the 20th era and the struggle and fight for equal social rights are still running. The LGBT movement is now in the 21st century, but circumstances are nearly same for the LGBT community. Although the 21st century is the most crucial time for this movement as there is a number of NGO’s and other activities also standing next to the LGBT for their rights.

The first success was earned by the LGBT society in 2004, when Massachusetts, became the very first state for giving permission for the same-sex marriage. Therefore, every anti-sodomy regulation in the U.S. was delivered illegally.

Time between 2008-present

In 2008, a notable twist came into the light, when the California Supreme Court unlined the previous suggestions, which disqualified the legalization of the same-sex marriage in the city. Even after this decision, more than 18,000 LGBT’s got the licenses in the same year.

After this, another state of United States banned the same-sex marriage. Another twisting point came in the highlight when the suicidal cases of LGBT teenagers increases in the nation due to abuse and harassment. Many activists and NGO’s raised the issue and protested for their rights on a large scale. After so many protests and fights, the nation’s Supreme Court legalized the same-sex marriage countrywide.

The fight for equal rights and recognition not stop here at all. There are many more countries where the LGBT community is still fighting for their rights.
