Let’s learn how this term evolves over a period of time in the US.

Homosexuality was the term to represent those who attract to same-sex.

In 1950 -60 it was replaced by homophile and subsequently to gay in 1970.

But gay words broadly represent only homosexual men.

Homosexual females were feeling deprived.

Female homosexuals started to be called lesbians.

However, the purpose of both male and female homosexual was to acquire social recognition in the constitution.

But both movements were not coming under a single umbrella.

In the meantime, Bisexual and transgender also felt deprived and started to raise a voice for the same.

Some organizations started to use the term ‘LGBT’ to represent all.

As time goes on, all other deprived communities also were added. Such as queer (questioning) two-spirit etc.
