LGBT v GLBT: I'm Puzzled By BlogHer's Decision

Within the gay/queer/LGBT/GLBT community there is a somewhat ongoing 'battle' about the appropriate umbrella term to describe us all ... Let me run it down for you ...alphabetically.Assexual also AlliesBisexualGayIntersexLesbianQueer also QuestioningTransgenderPut it all together and you have a lot disagreement over the "right" term.

I’m frustrated.  The man sitting in front of me is an incredible person. He’s been the chair of medical departments and president of one of the world’s largest global health non-profits. He’s improved the lives of millions of people. I have everything to learn from him, but I can’t seem to get much from what he’s saying....more
