LGBTQ (Qwerty?)

I am familiar with the acroymn "LGBT," which stands for "lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender/transsexual," but not "LGBTQ," which is starting to be more popular. I myself first saw it recently in subway PSA against violence. "Q" stands for the catchall "Queer." Hard to be inclusive -- I notarized a form recently where someone had to identify the person who he served. The only options were "M" or "F."
