- within the LGBTQ community
- within the larger society
- The status of this subject area presently
- Future concerns regarding this subject
In your paper intro, describe which area you are examining. It will be important to define whose beliefs and which components of the population you are discussing. In other words, there are pockets of great acceptance and also pockets of deep ambivalence/discrimination towards these various issues. Avoid generalizations and/or platitudes in your discussion of your chosen topic. (For example: Discrimination has improved over time……This sentence is so general that it conveys little meaning.)
