About our terminology:
LGBT is the preferred acronym for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and
Transgender/Transsexual persons. As of 2013-APR-03, Google finds 271 million occurrences of "LGBT" on
the Internet, compared with 13 million of "GLBT."
This section of our website deals with lesbian, gay and bisexual
persons only, and so LGB would be the logical acronym to use. However LGB
already refers to "Lehmann Gross Bahn" the line of large scale model trains for
outside use, as are currently made and sold by Maerklin.
So we selected GLB as the preferred acronym.
