Debunking "Homosexuality is a Western Product" Myth

Together with United Nations’ Free and Equal and with special thanks to researchers at the Burkle Center for International Relations, UCLA, we created an infographic to debunk the myth that homosexuality is a Western import.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and related identities have been present in various forms throughout history. As seen from the infographic below, many cultures have included, with varying degrees of acceptance, individuals who practice same-sex relations as well as those whose gender, gender identity and gender expression challenge prevailing norms, and many cultures still do. Download the pdf version of the infographic here.
