Gay liberation is largely a Marxist and Western movement to legitimize homosexual rights. Its premise is that LGBT people are entitled to the same rights as heterosexuals, much as blacks are entitled to the same as whites and women the same as men.

The gay liberation movement, originally designed to "liberate" gays from oppression and discrimination by heterosexuals, quickly devolved into controversy when bisexuals sought to be included. Additionally, gay libbers were charged with sexism because it excluded lesbians. Some debate erupted if lesbians were in fact gay, and it was eventually decided to allow females to retain their own identity as lesbians, although many women consider themselves gay. Then, the alleged most "oppressed" group of all, transsexuals, also sought inclusion. Over many years and decades the issues were incrementally resolved by establishing, first, the Lesbian-Gay alliance, with the traditional patriarchal cultural deference afforded to the female of the species (over the protests of some feminists) by putting "lesbian" before "gay, to which some nominal heterosexuals were then included into the Lesbian-Gay-Bi (LGB) coalition, and eventually, because of charges of bigotry within the movement, transexuals were also included into the modern LGBT movement.

With the establishment of the Lesbian-Gay alliance, the underlying psychological disturbances of misandry and misogyny, which is the basis and continuing affliction among many within the combined homosexual community, remained largely unaddressed. It should be noted, the bisexual group is the only group of the original coalition where the misandry and misogyny afflictions apparently do not exist in large numbers.

As the transgenderism movement arose, the terms transexual and transgender where initially used interchangeably to allow persons whose sexual identity was defined with a diagnosis of a psychological disorder into the movement. However the debate over the difference between transsexuals and transgenders is far from over. Simply stated, a person who has "fully transitioned" from one sex to another under a doctors care can be considered cured of their original diagnosis, whereas many transgenders choose to only partially transition and remain in that state. Medical science has not yet determined if the patient retains their original underlying medical affliction which caused the patient to seek medical and psychiatric treatment. Many so-called, and alleged, "transgenders" never seek medical help.
