^i mean there's two sides to it cause back then no way in hell I would come out and be one of those brave people who would protest and be possibly killed, I would just stay in the closet if we were in older times.
However, even now I think it's also the fact that some parts of the world are way more accepting so some people just don't feel the need to protest in their country because they feel accepted already. That's the case for me cause in the US it's all good at least now and I have never been to a gay parade or protest, and I even hardly ever interact with the gay community...it's not because I don't want to support gay rights but because I find those events just disgusting in the way that so many guys are wanting to hook up and what not
it's like okay it's one thing to protest and another to be a whore
can't speak for everyone but in the US it's a bit like that...I would go to a regular/straight bar anytime over a gay one...also I am actually okay with people not accepting gays as long as they keep it all to themselves and don't cause violence or discrimination, kinda like okay to each their own kinda thing when u don't agree with something, it's your opinion but u just let it go and let other people be.....some gays in the US have it too easy and they just want people to actually change their views to accept gays completely as in changing their religious beliefs for that. Like I said some people deeply don't think it's good but they let people be and treat them like anyone else, but some gay people here are even mad at that and want people to even change their religion just for them
But overall yes something needs to be done about other countries, but at the same time when u live in a country like that wouldn't u be scared of protesting for rights or coming out and being killed like that poor guy? I definitely would be
