I suggest we pick just ONE letter and make it our own for "the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender & questioning/queer community".

I suggest "k". Is that all right with all you guys ?

GAY™ is one simple; short; easy to spell word recognized around the world without the need for translation
.
Changing our brand at this point in the campaign would be foolish

Except that many lesbians, trans people, and others believe that "gay" is just too limiting and is implicitly male, when many in our "LGBTQ etc commuity" don't identify with that.

I suggest we use "k".

EXAMPLE:

question: "How are you today ?:)" answer: "I'm k !:)"

Is that okay with you guys ?:)

If you don't like that letter, then pick another letter we can all agree on.:)

( I remember when I was in college in the late 70's and there WAS a single letter we used, some of us anyway, and it was the Greek letter "lambda". I even had a lambda necklace I used to wear back then. So we HAVE used a single letter to identify ourselves before, and we can do it again instead of using the unwieldy and difficult to pronounce and long "LGBTQ etc." )

You can type the Greek letter "lambda" by using Windows' "character map" applet.

And they used to make lambda jewelry and other thngs with lamda on it.

I still suggest we use "k'.:)

k ?
