Transgender: The Forgotten T

Why We Need Our Own Movement

LGBT: gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender. For many years now, this has been the acronym under which people of alternative sexualities have been listed. For many years, this was deemed to be adequate. After all, alternative sexualities are all related, are they not? This paper takes the position that they while they are indeed related, there are subtle as well as not-so-subtle differences between them. It is these differences that cause a need for a separate group identity for transgender men and women.
