LGBT COMMUNITY 2 LGBT is a representation part of the global social community that is composed of the lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual community. The LGBT life also called the queer culture is characterized by minimal representation in various states, and therefore, their struggle mainly originates from issues of underrepresentation and the increase in efforts of globalization (Eunuchs, 2016). This queer culture varies widely by the identity of persons involved and geography. Several works of popular culture focus on the lives of transgender, gay and lesbian people. These works include books, poems, films, music and televisions programs among others, in this essay; we are going to discuss two films, which are Brokeback Mountain (2005) and Weekend (2011).

However, one of them is an introvert and is half-closeted while the other person is impetuous, does not fear to show his sexuality, and is outgoing. Their chemistry is explosive, and they rhyme and their views concerning the world in general complement each other. This movie provides an in-depth overview of the history of gay culture in the world; there is a tag of war in the film as the two principal actors get to know themselves and discover what they are. The film, Brokeback Mountain , is an American romantic film, which depicts a strong romantic and sexual relationship between two men (Heath and Jake). These two men meet in a job at Brokeback Mountain where they had been hired as sheepherders.

They then plan and meet up facing the fact that they indisputably need each other and being confused about what to do, they begin formulating lies about fishing trips for them to spend adequate time together.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
