The abbreviation LGBTIQ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Intersexual and Queer.

The Gay or Queer Scene is subject to continuous change. Accordingly, it is only understandable that new letters are used again and again under the associated abbreviation.

The abbreviations behind LSBTIQ stand for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, transgender, Transsexualintersexual and queer. Members of the scene are often involved in various awareness campaigns and participate in events such as Christopher Street Day in a similar way to LGBTQ.

Where in the beginning gay and Lesbian'n fought together for their rights, today intersexual and transsexual people, among others, also stand by their side. With the diversity of the scene, the name of the community changed at the same time. No wonder! After all, the goal is to include all people with the most diverse inclinations and preferences.

Today, members of the LGBTIQ scene are generally much more open about their inclinations than was the case a few decades ago. The community has grown and is also increasingly attracting the interest of politicians. And yet: despite increased tolerance and the possibility to stand by one's preferences in many countries of this world, unfortunately many "queer people" are still affected by discrimination in everyday life.

The LGBTIQ community has therefore made it its mission to stand up against bullying, crime and other assaults, and to Position to relate. It now also receives a lot of support from heterosexual people who love to admire the diversity of the scene in all its facets.
