Speaking Focus: LBGT - Breaking the Stereotypes

Stereotyping is a way our mind categorizes information and attempts to impose order and predictability in the world.  Often times, our attitudes and values shape our views of others even if we don't have an interpersonal relationship with that individual.  In this discussion of the LGBT community are topics regarding identity development, self-identification, terminology, sexuality, transgender issues, mental illness and societal perceptions, and misconceptions.
