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; two films, which are Milk (2008) and Weekend (2011) are extensively discussed. The Weekend is a British romantic film directed by Andrew Haigh, this movie describes a story about two young British males (Tom Cullen and Chris New) who meet at a club, catch up and eventually get to fall in love over a weekend. 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, Milk is about the life of an innovative gay Adventist Harvey Milk, who advocates for the rights of the gay culture and victory for a person’s freedom over prosecution by the state and social or political cause. The movie displays Milk as an entirely and fallibly mortal as well as a challenging campaigner for equal rights of all individuals including the gay, transgender lesbians and bisexual. The film shone a bright light for the LGBT community all over the United States, giving a representation of what gay life was all about. This movie brought

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
