Stigma is a strong social force that keeps people out. In school when we’re teased for being gay, on dates when we’re told we aren’t white, masculine, or muscular enough, and when we are made to feel inferior because of who we are or who we love. Stigma makes people feel ashamed of their bodies and emotions. It polices their gender and attractions.
