The meaning of LGBTQ and part of its history
We are all one no matter the sexual orientation.

LGBT May refer to anyone who is not heterosexual or non-transgender. These terms are used to describe a person's sexual orientation or gender identity.
The first widely used term, homosexual, now has negative connotations in the United States. He was replaced by homophile in the 1950s and 1960s and subsequently gay in the 1970s, the latter term was first adopted by the homosexual community.
As lesbians forged more public identities, the phrase "gays and lesbians" became more common. A dispute over whether the primary goal of their political goals should be feminism or gay rights led to the dissolution of some lesbian organizations, including the Daughters of Bilitis, who dissolved in 1970 after disputes over what goal should have priority.
Since equality was a priority for lesbian feminists, the disparity of roles between men and women was considered patriarchal. Lesbian feminists avoided the gender role play that had been widespread in bars, as well as the perceived chauvinism of gay men - many lesbian feminists refused to work with or advocate for gay men.
After the euphoria of change following group action in the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, some gays and lesbians were less receptive to bisexual or Transgender Critics said transgender people acted with stereotypes and that bisexuals were simply gay men or lesbian women who were afraid to go out and be honest about their identity.
Each community has struggled to develop its own identity, including whether and how to align with other communities based on gender and sexuality, sometimes excluding other subgroups these conflicts continue to this day.
LGBT or GLBT initialisms do not agree with all they cover. [86] For example, some argue that transgender and transsexual causes are not the same as those of lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) people. [87] This argument focuses on the idea that being transgender or transsexual has more to do with gender identity, or with a person's understanding of being or not being male or female, regardless of sexual orientation.
LGB issues can be seen as a matter of sexual orientation or attraction. These distinctions have been made in the context of political action in which LGB goals such as same-sex marriage legislation and human rights work may be perceived as different from transgender and transsexual goals.
Some lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people did not appreciate the representation of an all-encompassing "LGBT community". Some do not subscribe to or endorse the political and social solidarity, and the visibility and human rights campaigns that it normally entails, including gay pride marches and events.
Some of them believe that grouping people with non-heterosexual orientations perpetuates the myth that being gay / lesbian / bi / asexual / pan-sexual / etc. it makes a person poorly different from other people. These people are often less visible compared to more mainstream LGBT or gay activists.
Since this faction is difficult to distinguish from the heterosexual majority, it is common for people to assume that all LGBT people support LGBT liberation and the visibility of LGBT people in society.
Discriminating against a person for their sexual orientation is also racism. Because a person has a different sexual taste does not make her less of a person. WE ARE ALL ONE, just as we deserve respect, they also deserve.
