Sexuality and gender identity-based cultures concern the behaviors, beliefs, knowledge, and references shared by members of sexual minorities or transgendered people by virtue of their membership in those minorities. Among the first to argue that members of sexual minorities can constitute cultural minorities as well as being just individuals were Adolf Brand , Magnus Hirschfeld and Leontine Sagan in Germany. Not all members of a particular sexual minority participate in, or are aware of, the subculture that may be associated with that minority. In addition to simply not knowing that the culture exists, non-participants may be geographically or socially isolated, they may feel stigmatized by the subculture, they may simply dislike it feeling it is outdated, corrupted, or does not align with their personal taste or style , or they may prefer to affiliate with some other culture or subculture. Sexual minorities defined by sexual orientation and gender identity — lesbian , gay , bisexual , and transgendered people — are often seen as having a common culture, which can be called LGBT culture, Queer culture, or gay culture.

A s a teenage comic-book geek, I was captivated by John Constantine like no other character. The hard-drinking, chain-smoking punk rock occultist inhabited a grim and gritty world a million miles from the brighter, tamer settings of the Justice League and Fantastic Four. He was impossibly cynical, believably vulnerable and, like me, bisexual.
