LGBT (also GLBT) and variations are initialisms used to refer collectively to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and queer-identified people. 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.

Around the world, government policies regarding LGBT people range from the death penalty for sexual acts to civil marriages or partnerships for same-gender couples. Living conditions around the world also range from near-unanimous acceptance of public displays of affection to total discrimination in all areas such as housing or employment.

The program's name was changed from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy after the third season to broaden the scope of its content. The series was created by openly gay executive producer David Collins and his straight producing partner David Metzler and produced by their production company, Scout Productions.

Selected biography

Cavafy in 1900

Constantine P. Cavafy (April 29, 1863 – April 29, 1933) was a renowned Greek poet who lived in Alexandria, Egypt and worked as a journalist and civil servant. Cavafy was instrumental in the revival and recognition of Greek poetry both at home and abroad. He published 154 poems, many of which had overtly homosexual themes; dozens more remained incomplete or in sketch form. His most important poetry was written after his fortieth birthday.
