LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered) is a sub-genre of the romance genre. LGBT romances focus mainly on the relationships of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and/or transgendered people, but the setting of the story can vary.

Typically the authors and their stories center around one of the four different relationships:

  • Lesbian Romance: a story focusing around the relationship of two or more females.
  • Gay Romance: a story focusing around the relationship of two or more males.
  • Ménage Romance: a story focusing around the relationship of three or more people of different genders.
