Definition - What does Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) mean?

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) refers to the group of people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. This term aims to emphasize the diversity of sexuality and identity. It is commonly used to refer to anyone who isn't heterosexual. It is the first non-derogatory term to refer to non-heterosexuals as a whole.

Kinkly explains Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT)

Sexual orientation is a complicated equation that includes sexual attraction, sexual behavior, sexual fantasies, self identification, and social and lifestyle preferences. Although LGTB doesn't fully encompass the entire spectrum of non-heterosexual sexuality, it is one of the first widely accepted terms to describe not only people who aren't heterosexual, but to express the fact that many people don't fall under a single "category." As a result, there are many variants of LGBT that aim to be even more inclusive, although most are not widely used.
