Not to sound like an arse, but why should they? The straight, religious culture is shoved in their face in most books, magazines, movies, tv and laws. Don't tell me it isn't when there are states that are still trying to limit gay marriage, religious leaders get on tv and call the LGBT community a parasite on mankind, etc. Maybe if the far right side would quite trying to shove them back in the closet they wouldn't have to be so loud about who they are. Just my opinion. As a straight guy I have no problem with all types of love shown on tv and movies. I also have no problems with laws protecting LGBT from discrimination with a few exceptions made for the military. The only real difference between you and I is I have no religious doctrine telling me I should be against homosexual/transexual people (not that the bible says to be against them, but to not follow their ways, though many "religious" people take that differently).
