Through different classes this semester, I have been introduced to the wonderful world of TED talks. One in particular that I actually watched earlier this semester that stood out to me was Jenni Chang and Lisa Dazols talk from May 2015 entitled “This is What LGBT Life is Like Around the World”. In this video they talk about their journey documenting the lives of people they call the “Supergays” from countries outside the West who, according to Chang, “would be the LGBT individuals who were doing something extraordinary in the world. They would be courageous, resilient, and most of all, proud of who they were. They would be the kind of person that I aspire to be.” They wanted to prove that there were not only stories of tragedy from LGBT people outside the West, but also stories of hope. This video showed me the importance of accepting who you are with pride no matter what others in society may say. I also learned that it is vital for you to be supportive of those who may still be coming into terms with who they are as a person. Just because you experienced an aspect of your life a certain way does not mean others going through something similar will experience it the same as you did. In my opinion, love is the one thing that should never have any boundaries. No gender norms, borders, racial differences, etc. should keep anyone from being with the person they truly love.
