There are many different flags of the community, the one known world wide is the beautiful rainbow flag that is plastered everywhere. Though that flag has a meaning all on its own there are still other flags that don't get alot of recognition. The Pansexual flag for example, consists of three colorful lines, pink, yellow and blue. Pansexuals like someone no matter their gender and accepts people. The Bisexual flag has three colors of purple, hot pink, and a royal blue. Bisexuals like either a male or female and some even date both at the same time. Then there are the Asexual flag that has four lines with the colors, black, grey, white and purple. Asexuals are not attracted to any gender and though they do date, they are not sexually active. There are many that I have yet to find the flag for like Demisexual and Gender Queer, though they do have the flags for it. People fly these flags to show that they are proud of their sexuality and who shouldn't be. Love is love.

Children growing up with same-sex parents
People act like same-sex couples having kids is a horrible thing. They act like the couple is committing a crime by taking in a child and raising it into a loving and caring house hold. Same-sex couples want the same thing as everyone else, to be happy and to have a loving home. They made a choice to adopt, they didn't have to but they did because they saw how many children don't have homes because straight couples have so many "oops" babies that they don't want to take care of them. I'm not saying that adopted children are a mistake they are actually a blessing, because they where they brought into the world with a choice of who they want to raise them. Same-sex parents love their children just like any parent would, and because they are being raised by a couple that is out of the ordinary they learn not to judge others and accept people who are different. So, while people view same-sex parents as an abomination, they are actually a gift, by teaching they children not to judge and be kind to others they are raising a better generation. The older generation needs to just accept the changing world and accept same-sex couples

Coming out as bisexual/gay/lesbian or anything in between
It is always hard coming out to people, ones family, or anyone. Though if you are proud of who you are it is not hard at all. Some parents reject their children or just pretend that they are not gay at all. Being rejected is the biggest fear when someone comes out, some people are lucky and get accepted but others do get rejected and thrown out of their homes with no place to go. Parents always say before their child is born that, " It doesn't matter if it's a boy or a girl, I'll love them either way". If that's true than why throw your child out once Justin tells you she is Jessica. Even though some people rely on the support of others through their coming out process, sometimes ignoring the hate and just loving yourself and finally being you is all that matters. Once people be themselves and forget what society thinks or says is right, this world might, could, hopefully will be a better place and have more acceptance in it. So, yes, coming out is hard, though once it's done and over with you will feel this gigantic weight lift off of your shoulders. Just be you and don't let anyone else tell you otherwise.
