I think this is a possibly helpful video, but like Karen I'm not really sure how this is medical in any way.

Someone's sexuality should be completely irrelevant, as gender, race, height, eye color, disability would be. What should matter is a kind of person someone is - good, honest, dependable, hard-working etc. Perhaps someday people will be looking back, and wonder why someone's sexuality used to be such a great deal, the same way most reasonable people wonder today why did someone's race ever matter so much.

I wish one day, every one would support gay rights.

Don't really see how this minute and a half video by a 'doctor' (like being LGBT is a medical issue?) would be helpful, but hopefully it will help some teenager out there.
