Why it’s time to take the T out of LGBT

Why do so many people believe that if you’re transgender, then you must be gay? This myth is so widespread that even many gay people believe it – and they make up three quarters of the LGBT title we’ve all been filed under. Perhaps the title is, after all, partly to blame: using ‘LGBT’ suggests that being transgender is at the very least heavily associated with sexual orientation, when in fact it stands completely in isolation to what kind of person you prefer to sleep with.
