Abstract
For centuries in western society the Gay, Lesbian, Transgendered, and Bisexual individual has been persecuted, marginalized, and discriminated against by others within their own cultures solely on the basis of their sexuality. But has history always played out this way? The simple answer is no. In many indigenous cultures homosexuality and gender diversity were not looked upon as strange or sinful, but instead were incorporated as integral components of the society.
