LGBT, (or GLBT, LGBTQ) is an acronym standing for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender. This community incorporates minority sexual orientations, such as those listed. A more generic acronym is GSM (Gender and Sexual Minority). The letters 'L' and 'G' are often switched around in the acronyms.

Inclusion of Asexuality

The inclusion of asexuality in the LGBT is still debated in both the asexual community and the LGBT. Some say that asexuality is included in the group as Queer; others say that an "A" should be added to form "LGBTA". And others want asexuality to stay out of the LGBT altogether.
