This article is very inspiring for the LGBT community that more than five of thousands of gay rights supporters marched from the White House to the Capitol in early March 2010, aiming to convince President Obama to keep his promises to reduce discrimination and increase the acceptance of homosexual identity in the military.

O’Bryan, W. (2011, October 20). Evolving islam. Retrieved from

This article may surprise the Muslim community that two of the world’s three greatest religions, Judaism and Christianity, welcome LGBT individuals into their communities; however, Daayiee Abdullah, who is an openly gay imam in DC’s neighbourhood, amplifies the significance of welcoming LGBT individuals into the Muslim community for the first time in history of Islam.

GAY, LESBIAN, BISEXUAL, AND TRANSGENDER MOVEMENTS, AFRICA AND AFRICAN DIASPORIC. (2008). In Africa and the Americas: Culture, Politics, and History.

This journal article summarises that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender identities are unrecognised and illegal in Africa. It also demonstrates that Africans are strong in Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, which they have difficulties accepting their identities.

This article is a perfect source for my DC Class Blog to expose the importance of LGBT pride to Black Gay people. Western cultures are, in fact, more welcomed and acceptable than African cultures; however, men living as women are unbelievably acceptable in Africa. I appreciate this detailed justification of the hidden treasure of LGBT, which would be useful for my research.

Harley, D. A., Nowak, T. M., Gassaway, L. J., & Savage, T. A. (2002). LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, AND TRANSGENDER COLLEGE STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES: A LOOK AT MULTIPLE CULTURAL MINORITIES. Psychology in the Schools, 39(5), 525.

This academic article is researched by Debra A. Harley, Theresa M. Nowak, Linda J. Gassaway, and Todd A. Savage at the University of Kentucky that college students with disabilities, who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, seek multiple service needs involving disabilities, identities, and adjustment strategies. The purpose of their research is to increase the awareness of sexual minorities and disability on campus.

This article is very detailed and interesting about how to treat LGBT college students on campus. Moreover, the information is very reliable to my topic that would convince visitors to realise the significance of cultural diversity regardless of disabilities, races, and others.

Sanner, S., Baldwin, D., Cannella, K. S., & Charles, J. (2010). THE


This academic article is written by Susan Sanner, Dee Baldwin, Kathleen A.S. Cannella, and Jennell Charles about the impact of cultural diversity forum on students’ openness to diversity. They focus upon the cultural sensitivity of nursing students across the United States to assess the effectiveness of a cultural diversity forum on nursing students as measured by their openness to diversity.

This article fully justifies my confidence to include the effectiveness of strategies to increase cultural diversity in my DC Class Blog, so that it would fulfill LGBT and Black people’s needs to open their mind with diverse people. Also, this article has reliable statistics compared from 2000 to 2007 that shows the increase of racial groups.

Travers, R., Guta, A., Flicker, S., Larkin, J., Lo, C., McCardell, S., & van

der Meulen, E.. (2010). Service provider views on issues and needs for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth. The Canadian Journal of Human Sexuality, 19(4), 191-198.

This journal article is written by Robb Travers, Adrian Guta, Sarah Flicker, June Larkin, Chase Lo, Sarah McCardell, and Emily van der Meulen about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth requiring appropriate, effective, and accessible sexual health services in large urban, multicultural cities. Their suggestion fully justifies sexual health services that the minority group addresses the needs of LGBT youth in a large city; therefore, they would feel neither isolated nor neglected.

This article is a well-written, detailed, and informed source applicable to my DC Class Blog that sexual health services and LGBT events are important for LGBT youth to participate and amplify the significance of LGBT community. In addition, the article provided sufficient facts is highly appreciated that LGBT youth, for example, face two difficult barriers: diverse cultural backgrounds and differing religious beliefs.

Broome, B.. (2010). The focus is education. Journal of Cultural Diversity, 17(4), 121.

This journal is an article about focus in education. The author states and America’s educators need to rethink how to educate students to prepare them to be competitive in today’s world. The author suggests that a mentoring program can be used in the workforce to support people from different backgrounds.

This journal articles is very interesting because it talked about the focus in education. The author wants people from all backgrounds to be competitive. Is this a good article? I think it is a good article because it shows me that diversity can affect how students can be educated to be competitive in today’s world.

Edwards, K.. (2011). Global awareness and the diversity of human populations. Journal of Cultural Diversity, 18(2), 38.

 This journal is an article about global awareness and the diversity of human populations. The author explores the historic evolution of acculturation and its relationship to health care.

This journal articles is very odd because that topic is kind of different because I thought that topic will talk about awareness and the diversity of human however, sometime the article talked about health care and other things too.

Henrich, J., Heine, S., & Norenzayan, A.. (2010). Most people are not weird . Nature, 466(7302), 29.

 This journal article discusses the fact that in science experimentation, most people are not weird. They believe that to understand human psychology, behavioral scientists must stop doing most of their experiments on authors. The authors found the evidence those basic cognitive and motivational processes. The authors offer four suggestions: first, editors and reviewers should push researchers to support the evidence. Second, researchers credit for comparing diverse and inconvenient subject pools. Third, cross-cultural research. Finally, researchers must to evaluate how to finding apply to other population.

This journal article was not what I expected and was not helpful for understanding about cultural diversity.   I believe that the authors need to change their title: Most people are not WEIRD to be more explicit about the topic of the article.

Rahaman, B. (2010). School Matters: Why African American Students Need Multiple Forms of Capital. The Journal of Negro Education, 79(1), 89-90.

The author are feeling that African-American don’t well in the school while other white people do well in the school. The authors suggest that students who are high in one form of capital are often able to make up for being low in another form of capital. Parents and peer have different exposed of any books are an excellent read for K-12 school leaders and teachers.

This journal article is awesome because the authors seem to really care about education for lack of low in another form of capital. The authors also find a way to make students to make improve of form of capital.
