LGBT lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and other people often have special concerns or interests when travelling. This page lists three things: events and activities of special interest to, or targeted towards, LGBT travellers; destinations where being out as LGBT is acceptable; and destinations where it might be dangerous to travel if one's transgender status or nonheterosexual orientation is known. Some individuals and groups add other letters to explicitly include other groups "Q" for "queer" and "questioning", "I" for "intersex", "A" for "asexual", etc. Some other languages use terminology borrowed from English with slightly different interpretation. Many cultures have domestic concepts for sexual minorities.
