Welcome to the LGBT portal!

LGBT and variations are initialisms used to refer collectively to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender. Variations that are sometimes used include—but are not limited to—adding "Q" for queer or questioning, "I" for intersex, or "A" for asexual or aromantic. While LGBT is often used as a short way to refer to the various LGBT demographic groups, LGBT individuals themselves usually identify by other labels (such as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer), or by no label at all.

Around the world, government policies regarding the LGBT community range from the death penalty for sexual acts to civil marriages or partnerships for same-sex couples. Living conditions around the world also range from near-unanimous acceptance of public displays of affection to total discrimination in all areas such as housing or employment.

Location of Republic of Ireland

Since January 2011, same-sex relationships are recognized in the Republic of Ireland. Civil partnerships, granted under the Civil Partnership and Certain Rights and Obligations of Cohabitants Act 2010, give same-sex couples rights and responsibilities comparable to civil marriage. The first publicly celebrated Irish civil partnership under the Act took place in Dublin on April 5, 2011.

Selected biography

H.D. (born Hilda Doolittle) (10 September 1886 – 27 September 1961) was an American poet, novelist and memoirist best known for her association with the early 20th century avant-garde Imagist group of poets such as Ezra Pound and Richard Aldington. The Imagist model was based on the idioms, rhythms and clarity of common speech, and freedom to choose subject matter as the writer saw fit. H.D.'s later writing devleoped on this aesthetic to incorporate a more female-centric version of modernism.
