“LGBTQ” (or LGBT) are too many confusing letters for some people, who add the first six letters on the left side of a keyboard (“QWERTY”) to it, forming “LGBTQWERTY.” The “QWERTY” extension is not politically correct. “LGBTQWERTY” was posted on the newsgroup rec.sport.football.college on December 14, 2005.
“LGBTQQWERTY” (LGBTQ + QWERTY) has been less frequently used. “LGBTQQWERTY” was posted on Twitter by brucepmajors on May 10, 2013.
Similar extensions include “LGBTWXYZ” (LGBT + WXYZ). “LGBTQWXYZ” (LGBTQ + WXYZ), “LGBTXYZ” (LGBT + XYZ) and “LGBTQXYZ” (LGBTQ + XYZ).
Wikipedia: LGBT
LGBT, or GLBT, is an initialism that stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender. In use since the 1990s, the term is an adaptation of the initialism LGB, which was used to replace the term gay in reference to the LGBT community beginning in the mid-to-late 1980s. Activists believed that the term gay community did not accurately represent all those to whom it referred.
The initialism LGBT is intended to emphasize a diversity of sexuality and gender identity-based cultures. It may be used to refer to anyone who is non-heterosexual or non-cisgender, instead of exclusively to people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. To recognize this inclusion, a popular variant adds the letter Q for those who identify as queer or are questioning their sexual identity; LGBTQ has been recorded since 1996.

Now HERE’S a big surprise…     
IMO, the current inclusion of the “B” in the LGBTQWERTY grouping is at pretty stark odds with “we can’t help how we were made” mantra

@polerin I’ll believe these celebrities “love” lgbtqwerty when they refuse to tour in areas that ban gay marriage, allow hate speech etc

What’s with some people needing more than the 4 letter LGBT to make their claim. Isn’t LGBTQWERTY a little long winded?

I get only two choices, female and male?  Where are my options for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and the whole panoply of LGBTQWERTY lifestyle choices?

Somebody call a timeout. We’re lighting up in force with the LGBTQqwerty assholes in the air…
