 What is the Homosexual's Role in Society?
There are two schools of thought concerning gay life and the
society as a whole. One holds that homosexual people should defy
the social norm and live as a part of a separate sub-culture. The
other maintains that homosexuals are only slightly different
members of that society, and should accept it as a whole. These
two extreme viewpoints are presented here not as a means for
deciding which position is correct, but as a reference in
deciding which points of each argument you believe.
The early gay movement adopted as its matter is then made the public focus of
