Okay, here is a list of statements describing a certain group. See if you can figure out who it is.

» They make up a small minority of the population.

» There is a lot of prejudice and even harassment from the majority towards them.

» They go through a very personal coming out experience.

» Sometimes when they come out they are ashamed of who they are, while some others embrace stereotype.

» Many are prone to hide their identities.

» They often lose friends and families because of their identities.

» They have only begun to get public visibility over the past few decades.

» Many people consider them unholy and are sure they will go to Hell.

» There is a push for laws to grant them rights, but those bills are hotly contested, particularly by the religious right.

» People who support them publicly are often considered to be just as unholy and detrimental to moral society as the people themselves.

» They have some unique sexual behaviors.

» Such behaviors are more common among the general public than people realize.

» They are often unfairly/inaccurately perceived as predatory.

» Some people are afraid to let them near their children.

» They are often defined only by what they do instead of by who they are.

» There are a lot of unfounded rumors and stereotypes about them.

» They congregate in their own bars.

» Their bars are often unfairly raided by the police.

» Police also profile and discriminate against them.

» They drink their own beverages.

» We still don’t know exactly how they came to be.

Think you’ve figured it out? Here are a few extra lines you’ll have to scroll past so I don’t spoil the game.

So what’s your guess? If you guessed vampires on True Blood, you were correct!

That’s not what you guessed? Huh.
