Template sidebar move: LGBT to LGBTQ[edit]

This discussion has been copied & pasted from Wikipedia talk:WikiProject LGBT studies:

The template sidebar used on many LGBT related articles was changed between 19 & 21 February from "Template:LGBT sidebar" to "Template:LGBTQ sidebar", to include the term Genderqueer. Potentially controversial changes should be discussed beforehand, but there appears to have been no discussion, either before or since. The associated Talkpage redirects here: Template talk:LGBT. Is everyone happy with this?Daicaregos (talk) 14:54, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

LGBT as an initialism has a much more widespread usage:
It should therefore stand to reason that LGBT should take precedence over LGBTQ. I am therefore not particularly impressed that this has been done without discussion. -- roleplayer 16:47, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
Perhaps you, and other members of this project, would like to comment on that Talkpage. I don't feel qualified to pass comment, but wanted to bring it to your attention, as the change seemed rather radical to me. Cheers, Daicaregos (talk) 13:05, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
Undo it. No bloating, or soon we'll be dealing with FABGLITTER.~ZytheTalk to me! 17:19, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
I've moved it back pending discussion.

Edit request from , 10 November 2011[edit]

Elmasry96 (talk) 18:56, 10 November 2011 (UTC) George wants to be added to the gay people page.

Not done: please be more specific about what needs to be changed. --NYKevin @871, i.e. 19:54, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

Edit request on 3 May 2012 (LGBTQA)[edit]

LGBT should also include Q and A for queer people (people without a definite label) and for asexuals ( people who are not attracted to any gender sexually) (talk) 02:39, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Not done: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit semi-protected}} template. Given the discussion directly above, it appears consensus has been against this in the past. Regardless, it's something that should probably be decided by the whole of Wikipedia talk:WikiProject LGBT studies and not simply this template. elektrikSHOOS (talk) 16:10, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

How about this photo ?[edit]

This one is better than the original. - (talk) 16:45, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

I like the current one, the sunlight shining through the flag is a nice touch. And you also see more of the actual flag in that one than this one. Cadiomals (talk) 19:26, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Chinese Characters[edit]

I feel like this was put her by I biased LGBT supporter. Why I think this is wrong if homophobia is a word that describes an irrational fear of homosexuality then why is the word heterophobia made to seem like it can't be a irrational fear. I believe that homophobia and heterophobia should be shown the same level of equality. Where one is an irrational fear of LGBT people and the other a fear of straight people. I completely disagree with what was written the term may have not been around as long as homophobia but I feel it deserves to carry the same kind of definition or remove the page completely from Wikipedia. 2606:A000:3041:8600:5C24:D38A:69CA:7B1B (talk) 12:24, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

Under "Sexual orientation", add "Pansexuality" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pansexuality), "Polysexuality" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polysexuality), and "Asexuality" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asexuality)

Why was the flag changed?[edit]

Question in title. There seems to have been no discussion on this. Tech12 (talk) 13:58, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

The decision to change the official flag for the "Philadelphia City" is arbitrary. There are no sources that indicate that there is consensus in LGTB organizations that this new flag will be adopted, therefore the change should be reverted to the rainbow flag. --Cardnewman (talk) 21:08, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

@Cardnewman: I agree. I'll change it back. Tech12 (talk) 21:11, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

Gender identity[edit]

As it is a template about LGBT, the T should also be represented. Maybe a section called Gender identity should be added under the Sexual orientation one, and include transgender, transexual, cisgender, intersex, third gender or genderqueer articles as well. DaddyCell (talk) 20:22, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

I like this idea too. This sounds like a good addition.Tech12 (talk) 20:42, 11 June 2017 (UTC)
If you read intersex you will see that it doesn't belong under gender identity, any more than it belongs under sexual orientation. Trankuility (talk) 21:24, 11 June 2017 (UTC)


Is asexuality a part of the LGBT? The articles (LGBT history, LGBT community) do not say anything about asexuality. Federal Chancellor (NightShadow) (talk) 22:50, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

LGBT charity GLAAD seem to think that they are (https://www.glaad.org/blog/asexual-agender-aromantic), the book "Asexuality and Sexual Normativity: An Anthology" also links the two (p60), the book "LGBT Psychology and Mental Health: Emerging Research and Advances" also ties asexuality into the LGBTQ+ community (P122),both of which are academic books. I think there is enough to back putting asexuality in sexual orientations and is part of the LGBT community. I will add it back in, if there are no sourced objections, when I am able to get on account. By the way, I am Welsh Socialist (talk-- (talk) 00:14, 20 December 2017 (UTC)
