LGBTQs and Buddhism, Islam and Baha’i

Monastic texts suggest that there are four sexes: male, female, ubhatovyanjañaka and pa??ak. The former two are interpreted as a range of sexual and gender variations of male-bodied, female-bodied and intersex people. How the layperson relates to LGBTQs edicts differs among cultures in the world. In the West, Buddhists tend to be socially and politically active and choose to remember Buddha’s emphasis on tolerance, compassion and seeking answers within one’s self.
