"LGBT and variations are "initialisms used to refer collectively to "Lesbian, "Gay, "Bisexual, and "Transgender. Variations that are sometimes used include—but are not limited to—adding "Q" for "queer or "questioning, "I" for "intersex, or "A" for "asexual or "aromantic. While LGBT is often used as a short way to refer to the various LGBT demographic groups, LGBT individuals themselves usually identify by other labels (such as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer), or by no label at all.
