When I enter in our LGBTQ community center it only allows me to classify us as  a Lesbian and Gay center. This is erasing of our Transgender community members. Please Add LGBT or LGBTQ or at the least Transgender Service to your clissifications

Hi @Larry A


Google does not cover every single possible category, you need to pick the nearest possible ones.


Just make sure you mention all the genders within the description. Google machine learns based on description and linked website, so you will still be appearing for other relevant searches.


I have made a note on our category file, but this may take time before / if it is selected.
