 | 
10/26/2021

The LGBT community, as it is commonly called, is an acronym that encompasses some of the existing sexual orientations: lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transsexuals. However, the acronym has been growing and more and more other sexual orientations receive the validation they are due. To LGBT was added the letter I for intersex and Q for queer, which in the literally term means “strange”, however, in the acronym, it includes those who do not want to be labelled with other sexual orientations and look at sexuality as a fluid concept . The “+” was included in the acronym in order to include all humans as (non) affective beings. ILGA Portugal is a Portuguese association created in 1995, according to its website, its objective is “the social integration of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex population and their families in Portugal through a broad programme of support within the scope that guarantees the improvement of their quality of life”. ILGA Portugal is associated with other European non-governmental organisations that share the same objective.
