Lgbtq what dose this mean in our society ? This stands for Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, a q will be added for queer or questioning?which, according to PBS, became a common word in the mid-20th century to describe same-sex relationships. The outlet reports that the word “gay” actually dates back to the 13th century when it was known to mean “happy” or “joyous.” But in the 1940s and ‘50s, “gay” emerged as a code word used within the community to describe sexuality and express same-sex desire. By the ‘60s, the word was embraced by the community as a mark of pride and was at the forefront of the gay rights movement. By the end of the 1990s, activist organizations started using LGBT or GLBT, including the T for transgender folks. Though according to Salon, it was debated because some believed the GLB community should be restricted to sexual identity, and not inclusive of gender identity. However, the T remains, as it should, since trans activists have long been at the forefront of the community’s fight for rights and acceptance. Trans women of color activists like Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera were central to the Stonewall riots, which have been called the genesis of the LGBTQ community we know now. The American Civil Liberties Union reports that even today, in 2022, trans people continue to face discrimination in schools, healthcare, housing, and employment. Trans representation is crucial.

There are many other terms you should be familiar with as well. Keep reading for a glossary of phrases commonly used both in and outside the LGBTQ community:

So why i am explaining all this because to make our society understand that the LGBTQ community is not different from us they are a normal people like us who have rights to live happily and freely . They are free to do what they like and we should accept them happily which we are not doing even when this community is accepted by law. Why they are treated in a way as if they have done something wrong they are created by god as we are so when u accept them you will get to know there goodness.
I m a big fan of Drag queen Sushant Divgikar the way she carry herself as queen i m stuned to see that being myself a women. They have rights to study ,to dance to enjoy so please accept this LGBTQ community don’t question them for your enjoyment if you can’t carry yourself like them dosen’t mean they are useless .
For me they are part of shiv + shakti which means the Godhead, of which the masculine, passive, transcendent, eternal principle is Shiva, and the feminine, active, immanent, temporal principle is Shakti, the Divine Mother which is carried by this community so accept them as your sister,lover,friend because they are beautiful in themselves.
