"LGBT" is used here as an elision of "LGBTQIA," which stands for:

  • L) lesbian
  • G) gay
  • B) bi (bisexual, bicurious, bigender, etcetera [etc.])
  • T) trans (transgender, transsexual, crossdressing, etc. [trans means "(a)cross" in Latin]), third-gender, two-spirit, etc.
  • Q) queer (including genderqueer, etc.), questioning, etc.
  • I) intersex
  • A) asexual, agender, allied (which can be anyone), and others (et al. [Latin et alii]) (pansexual, genderfluid, heteroflexible, homoflexible, fourth-gender, etc.)

Defined this way, "LGBTQIA" (elided as "LGBT") is an acronym that includes persons of all genders, sexes, and sexualities (including cisheterosexuality) that support the equal rights of gender and sexual minorities (GSM).
