“…visibility both onscreen and in real life, is a necessary component of the fight for equality and the passing of civil rights laws. After decades of invisibility and marginalization, the coming out of LGBT people dispels myths, challenges perceptions, and changes the culture’s understanding of (homo) sexuality in general” (Benshoff, 194). #equality #LGBT #gayrights #Mack

I agree with this quote because for a minority group to gain acceptance and recognition, their voice must be heard through the media and in life. We have become much more accepting of the LGBT community since early America when they were looked down upon negatively and their sexuality was often disguised.
