- This differential treatment in both the community of culture and mainstream white LGBT community may lead some LGBT people of colour to experience varying degrees of visibility and invisibility within these communities, and their identity as a LGBT person may change depending on the cultural context.
- Additional letters are sometimes added, such as 'Q' for queer or questioning, 'I' for intersex, 'P' for pansexual, 'A' for asexual, etc.
- The sequence of the letters is sometimes switched to GLBT.
- When speaking only of sexuality, but not gender, the abbreviations LGB or GLB may be used.

Although the umbrella term LGBT makes pragmatic sense, there are compelling arguments to treat transgendered people as distinct from LGB communities: gender identity is clearly distinct from sexual identity (Dean et al., 2000) and to conflate the two risks ignoring the particular experiences of this ["trans"] group which is itself heterogeneous, comprising intersex individuals, androgynes, transvestites, and a whole range of others. Transgendered people […] can experience trans-phobia within LGB services and communities[.]
