The Impact of Discrimination on Youth Being In and Out of the Closet

Introduction

Discrimination has been around for centuries and even though there have been many
improvements in the way society deals with discrimination, we still have a very long way to
go.

Those who hide their sexual identities are referred to as either closeted or said to be in
the closet in terms of contemporary homosexual culture. Coming out is referred if someones
revealed their homosexuality.

In this proposed topic, the proponents will discuss the different types of
discrimination that LGBT youths and the impact of discrimination on these youths. The
proposed topic will further discuss the impacts on LGBT youths not only caused by
discrimination but also due to lack of support and guidance. The proposed topic will also
discuss the role of the parents and schools in helping minimize discrimination against LGBT
youth. The proposed topic will promote schools and teachers to accept and support LGBT
students somewhat add to the discrimination that they already faced. By doing this, it will
decrease the school drop out rate and most important the youth suicidal rate. The essence of
this proposed topic is to recognize the different impact on LGBT youths due to discrimination
and to explore various actions with the help of schools and parents to facilitate all these
youths live in a normal and happy life. The objective of this proposed topic is to evaluate
school system as well as the parents of LGBT youths.
LGBT Communities and Domestic Violence

Introduction

Since the advent of the contemporary battered womens movement in the early
1970s, intimate partner violence (IPV) has been constructed as a social justice issue
threatening the equality, self-determination, and inherent dignity and worth of survivors of
violence in the home. As such, social workers have played a central role in the development
of policies and programs to prevent its occurrence, rehabilitate perpetrators, and empower
survivors as part of the professions social justice mandate. Although an extensive collection
of empirical literature has evolved over the last 40 years to support evidence based practice
with perpetrators and survivors of IPV, this body of work has primarily centered on violence
in heterosexual couplings between cissexual identified female victims and male perpetrators.
In recent decades, a surge of scholarship has attempted to address this limitation of the
literature by documenting the prevalence of IPV in rainbow communities, its common and
differential correlates when compared to IPV experienced by heterosexual and cissexual
identified individuals, and the barriers lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered (LGBT)
survivors of IPV face in accessing support in the aftermath of violence. Collectively, this
work has highlighted the importance of understanding the experiences of gender and sexually
diverse populations with IPV within the broader context of social structures and ideologies,
which create unique vulnerabilities for violence (both within the home as well as society at
large) for members of these populations.
