I knew the LGBT as the LGBT, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trasgender.
At first I tought it was a pretty long name, but hey, they had to have them all there right?
But when I first came here I noticed that the LGBT was not the LGBT, it was the LGBTQ, what the hell does the Q stand for? After a while I think I saw somewhere that the Q was for "questioning". Oh, okay, let's not include those who aren't sure to which group they belong to, sounds fine for me.
Some other random day, I overheard a pair of friends talking "LGBTQ? what does the Q stand for? - Queer -I swear that name is getting longer everyday, what is the difference between queer and gay anyway?" And I couldn't hear what the difference was, but, now I wasn't sure what the Q was for. One more letter, well, how longer could it get?
Then, not so long ago, there was a drag show, and on the entrance table, I saw this: "LGBTIQ".
One more letter.
It stood for "Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transexual Intersex Queer".
It is indeed getting longer.
I think it'd be easier for the LGBT folks to be the "¬S" you know, as in, "not straight".
Or just something along the lines of "Association of People with Different Sexual Orientations", instead of trying to add every single variant in there.
