Question by ditzy gurl: What kinds of informations should i put in my documentary about stereotypes?
My documentary has to be informative. Like for instance, you don’t know what stereotype is. How would i explain it to you to make you fully understand what it means? What kind of questions would you ask me? i’ve started on my documentary already, but i just got some interviews on different stereotypes. i really need some more ideas and informations to put. help!

Start by giving your definition of a stereotype, and how stereotypes are a commonplace in our society. List stereotypes affecting your target research group (the LGBT community I assume), and discuss how these stereotypes are negatively affecting the gay rights movement. Explain that even though a stereotype may seem harmless or flattering, it can have negative repercussions throughout society and affect people in all different demographic groups. For example, people who believe all gay men are bitchy queens and avoid them are missing out on a great opportunity to be friends with a very nice individual. Shed light in the form of verified facts to dispel stereotypes, and give the possible roots to these stereotypes.
Best of luck with your documentary 😉
