Gay 2.0 – Upgrade for Free

0

Call it a generational shift or a social evolution. But changing attitudes towards homosexuality over the past decade or so have triggered a change in the way that many gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people view themselves – and the world around them.

As shame and self-loathing is giving way to pride and self-confidence, long-standing stereotypes and aspects of traditional “gay” culture are evolving into more optimistic attitudes that reflect a new sense of openness and freedom.
