LGBT is also known as LGBTTIQQ2SA. It is an acronym for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer, Questioning, 2-Spirited, and Allies. It has recently expanded to include the letter T for Transgender. The term was coined by the first surgeon to perform gender reassignment surgery, Robert Stoller, in 1962.
