Gay, lesbian, queer — What is LGBT+ and LGBTTQQIAAP?
In use since the s, the term is an adaptation of the initialism LGB , which began to replace the term gay in reference to the broader LGBT community beginning in the mid-to-late s. It may refer to anyone who is non-heterosexual or non- cisgender , instead of exclusively to people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. Longer acronyms, with some being over twice as long as LGBT , have prompted criticism for their length,    and the implication that the acronym refers to a single community is also controversial. The first widely used term, homosexual , now carries negative connotations in the United States. As lesbians forged more public identities, the phrase "gay and lesbian" became more common.
