LGBT or GLBT is an initialism that stands for lesbian, gay, bisexuality, and transgender. In use since the 1990s, the term is an adaptation of the initialism LGB, which was used to replace the term gay in reference to the LGBT community beginning in the mid-to-late 1980s. Activists believed that the term gay community did not accurately represent all those to whom it referred.

LGBT rights are considered human rights by the Amnesty International and civil rights by some.
