Unit 3 Project: Choosing a Topic
For my final project I have chosen to research and explore the issues of homosexual rights. I have chosen this topic because I feel that it will be an influential part of the next ten years in our society. Already we have experienced instances in our history when a group has fought for their rights. I believe that the gays of the United States will be the next to have a movement for equal rights.

This is partially why I believe that their will be drastic changes in the next 10 years for this topic.
While researching my topic I will most likely be using articles that have been published, and basically use the facts of these articles and provide additional information as to why this topic is the one that will most change in the next year. I already have help of articles in the Kaplan Library . One of the article includes: “The future of Gay” which touches on the “what if’s” of our past. (Advocate; 6/22/2004 Issue 917) It also talks about what the author thinks will be the future for the gay community. Another article that I found was called “Gay marriage Debates move into the Workplace”. This...
