The researchers would like to acknowledge our friends in 4-St. Thomas Aquinas for sticking
Up with us through the research for information on homosexuality and providing us much needed criticism and ideas.
The researchers would also like to thank my parents; Chito and Verna Detabali for providing us food during our long grueling hours of research in my house and occasionally offering their take on Homosexuality.
And lastly, hundredfold thanks to Ms. May Lastimoza for her undying patience and brilliance in helping us revise our ideas for a more effective research.
BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

learn about the lives of homosexuals, and not just the general questions asked but also the more
intimate questions, like family planning and the hazards of their chosen sexuality. In the midst

emotional stability of the adopted children other homosexuals may care for.

C. Significance of the Study
Studying this matter is important for people, because it’s an eye-opener regarding reality.
As what the researchers see, homosexuality is spread out in almost all parts of the country as
well as all over the world. The researchers’ desire is for the society to accept the fact that third
sex is now part of the community and therefore could lessen the cases of discriminations.
Although homosexuality is sometimes a banned subject in certain countries, the researchers
wants to prove and acknowledge that homosexuals have the right to fight for what they are and
what they believe in. Some People want to sop discrimination, so, let’s start with the ones who
need it the most. Because they have every right to be treated just the way we treat males and
females, given the same amount of respect we give ourselves because, in the eyes of God we
are all equal
