A Symbol of Pride
Each major city has an area where the LGBTQ community gravitates to. The Gayborhood, once called the gay ghetto by haters and oppressors, was rebranded by the LGBTQ community and is (usually) a small part of a sprawling downtown that, against all odds, was dug out and transformed into a haven for the LGBTQ community. In these areas, you can find your people, from creatives, activists, business professionals, and explorers newly out in the LGBTQ community, in a nurturing environment that helps you grow as an individual and encourages self expression.
But what about outside of those major cities? What about the communities that hinder any form of self expression at the risk of being alienated or sent to a conversion camp? (Conversion camps are way worse than being expelled… no offence Hermione.)
