Change "Gay Rights" section to "LGBT Rights"

Gay people are not the only members of the queer community who face discrimination. Bisexuals and trangender people also face the same discrimination faced by homosexuals, and in many cases additional discrimination.

As the site stands now, petitions affecting bisexuals and/or transgender people must either be filed erroneously under "gay rights" or under the broad umbrella term "human rights." Change.org should reflect the diversity of the LGBT community and not promote one section of the community above the others.

      A malicious ex-tenant constantly sent me rape mails where lesbians and homosexuals were sexually tortured and raped.

      Takes guts to petition the site you are petitioning on. You are right though. Gay rights are just one section.
