What does the letters in "LGBTQ" stands for:

L: lesbian

G: gay

B: bisexual

T: transgender

Q: queer or questioning

The acronym represents the diverse community of people who identify as non-heterosexual and/or non-cisgender. The term is used to promote equality and recognition for people who are marginalized based on their sexual orientation and gender identity.

In India, the LGBTQ community has faced significant legal and social challenges. In 2018, India's supreme court overturned a colonial-era law that criminalized homosexuality. However, discrimination and violence against the LGBTQ community remain widespread in India. There have been efforts by activists and allies to raise awareness and push for greater legal protections and social acceptance for the LGBTQ community in India.
