The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) movement is a social movement just like the civil rights movement. This movement fought for the equal rights of the LGBT community. Just like the Civil Rights movement, the LGBT community wanted equal rights and wanted to be a part of civilization without being prejudiced against. Because of this movement same sex marriages are legal. The community is more welcomed than in the past.
JASMINE POST IN 100 WORDS
Yes there are many concerns that the LGBT community have. One major concern is the violent acts towards them. I know a couple people under the LGBT community and I know their number one concern is being accepted and not viewed differently by others. However, they worry more about if people will accept them like that when they see them in public or will they react with violence to try and show them that they are not wanted in the community. LGBT communities sacrifice a lot in their life to show others that they are just the same just different in other ways but as a human nothing has changed about them. I know a lot of people who try to show others that they aren’t a threat to a environment they just want the same equal rights as everyone else in the world. I agree with them, they should be discriminated against because of their sexual preference. This is so judgmental and nobody in the world has the right to judge anyone because everyone has things going on in their life.

A comparison to the Civil Rights Movement is the Black Lives Matter which began in 2013 after George Zimmerman was acquitted for killing a 16 year old young African American boy Trayvonn Martin. Black Lies Matter became nationally recognized for its street demonstrations following the 2014 deaths of two African Americans, Michael Brown in Ferguson and Eric Garner in New York City. Black Lives Matter (BLM) regularly holds protest against the police killings of black people, and deeper issues such as racial profiling, police brutality, and racial inequality. In my opinion we still have a long way to go before there is a resolution.

In October 2017 after the allegations in Harvey Weinstein, the me too movement was started. This movement started in social media with #metoo. This movement was started to protest against sexual assault and harassment. It was a way for women to vocalize their beliefs on how they should be respected and to show survivors they aren’t alone in this situation a solution to the problem will promote healing to all people that have experienced this.

As a result of a young boy’s actions in March of 2018, the #Never Again Movement was born by teenagers from Parkland, Florida. Nicholas Cruz took an AR-15 to school and took the lives of several high school children. While there has always been a fight against gun control, never has it come from, or at a fast rate, a group of high school kids. #Never Again has been organized by high school children, with the only involvement from adults being that which is needed where legalities are concerned. These children has received death threats, as absurd as that may sound, as they are fighting for their lives. They have invited other organizers to join. They were backed by, then, Gov. Rick Scott. Since, the #Never Again movement is aimed at gun control, they will be significant in the future and with them being young, everyone is listening.

The beauty of nonfiction is that it is centered around the truth which allows the author to be colorful in writing. A story can always be manipulated even in fact to the advantage of the writer. I believe the most creative part of nonfiction is when the journey begins, taking you from the page in the book/essay to the water on the lake surrounding boat docks, fishing poles and the smell of fresh fish and grits coming from a cabin. Or the description of the first time she/he baited a hook for fishing. The story itself if plainly told would be just another story, but the picture developed, the emotions delivered all assist in the creativity.

Hello professor and class. Starting from the beginning nonfiction is a work in it self that is actual in fact that it has already happened. When writing in creative nonfiction we have the opportunity to be creative within ourself and the readers and it allows our imagination to wonder. As per other nonfiction formats like articles or a movie or book review. We must talk about that specific example that is being handed to us. If I want to write a review about the new mine “The Grinch” I can’t talk about a totally different movie so our creativity is limited to only speaking about that one piece of art.
CHRISTOPHER POST IN 50 WORDS
Often times when i think of creative nonfiction i think of fishing stories the story is factual in the sense that the time place and event are all the same but the size is usually the creative part. Often times creative nonfiction embellishes the story a bit so that you can make it more interesting or help draw in more readers because relief events may lack the gusto and inspiration that the creative version may add. Also it helps the reader to relate to that creativity as well.
