Queerty is better as a member
As awareness and tolerance increases, so does the risk of backlashes at a target that has become more visible. I think we’re seeing the same around the world, in Brazil, Africa and everywhere where homosexuals were mostly hidden, or ignored and mildly tolerated, now become a matter of public discussion and action.
Religious fundamentalism and traditionalism are also spreading, as cowardly homophobes hide themselves amongst the good religious people and corrupt their traditions and culture. Attacking religion does not help, but alienates those who need to stand up against the haters who hide amongst them.
The Philippines is still a good place for LGBT. Many Korean LGBT leave Korea only to come out here in the Philippines. The level of freedom for LGBTs to express themselves is really staggering. The Philippines is a third world country and crimes are pretty high. For LGBT and the heterosexuals, crime rates are pretty high. But if you will consider most commercials and TV programs here, you can really see how Gay the country is.
