We feel the excitement of living during a rapidly progressing gay revolution. The conversation is buzzing about gay bullying, gay marriage, gay adoption, and gay soldiers. There are numerous reasons to be hopeful.
Mission: Our project’s mission is to strengthen our LGBT community by sharing our experience of world travel as a lesbian couple while meeting queer individuals across the globe. We want to raise awareness of the struggles of LGBT individuals around the world while also identifying stories of hope for change.
The Supergays: During our travels, we’ll be on the hunt for the Supergays – individuals who are leading the momentum on the LGBT movement. Super Gays may be directly involved in community organization, or they may be using their influence in politics, health, arts, entertainment, or business to raise awareness and make progress on gay issues.
Interviews: We plan to conduct 50 interviews with Supergays from the countries that we’re traveling to. We’ll ask them questions such as…
What is their coming out story?
What has compelled them to do their work in the LGBT commmunity?
How does their culture respond to their sexuality (their families, society, friends, etc?)
How do they find other LGBT individuals?
What are their visions for the future, both as an individual and for society as a whole?
What is their greatest hope for the LGBT movement in their country?
