"LGBT" is everywhere these days. But is it here to stay, or is it a passing fad? Where did it come from? Why was it promoted? By whom? And to what end? How did it acquire its seemingly endless variants? The acronym, in its many permutations, designates a movement very different from the gay liberation movement it evolved from.
