Phobia

Phobia

A phobia is considered to be the fear of either an enronment (eg, lift, airplane), a creature (eg, spider, bird), a situation (eg, public speaking) or of a person (eg a clown).

However in the case of the phobia experienced by LGBTQ people, the cause is more likely to be caused by bigotry and hate. If we are being kinder, we might though suggesr that LGBTQ phobia is about a lack of education about different sexualities and gender identity.

The more LGBTQ+ individuals can be visible and “out” the more the phobia is likely to decrease and acceptance that we are all different is likely to rise.
