    So I'm designing an emblem or logo for my newly formed LGBT society on campus and couldn't help but wonder what animal really represent us gays? How about a lion or wolf?

    You should make a subtle reference to gay sub cultures -- Have a bear, an otter, a wolf, and then overhead there's a fairy flying by sprinkling them with magic sparkle dust.

    Peacocks or the flamingos above. The video above looks like a gaggle of queens at the bar parading around looking for a mate.

    I know it's popular in schools to have animal mascots, but is that really necessary in an LGBT club? Do the History, Business or International Students clubs have animal mascots? We didn't when I was a faculty advisor to our university's 10% Club for GLBT (pre-LGBT).

    Consider something more graphic. On a round field, a rainbow arc for the top half. The bottom half has a mirroring arc with the words "Rainbow Diversity". And in the middle is "LGBT Club", with your school named above or below it, or even shadow watermarked behind it with the name or school crest.

    I see controversy at every turn. It you make it a bear, otter or wolf you will be leaving out women. If you make it a flamingo or peacock you are stereotyping us as queens and still not representing lesbians. I like dolphins because they always have a smiling face and apparently male dolphins mate for life. Penguins would work as well. Then there is the cock of the rock but I think few people would know what that bird is called. This list should give you some ideas. I'm thinking penguin might be the least controversial.

    The seahorse. The male impregnates the female and she deposits the eggs in his pouch. He gives birth to the babies.

    Crazy role reversal in the animal kingdom. The gays and lesbians should approve.

    Nothing represents LGBT people. It's a community so diverse that to categorise it into one animal would be anti-thetical. Surely a better approach would be a slogan to show diversity.

    My first thought also was penguin and I also was just about to post that same list when I saw your post.

    I'd add to that another option for the T of LGBT and that would be any from this group:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sequential_hermaphroditism

    I'd go with the clownfish because they're pretty, they have a wonderful sense of humor and they form "symbiotic mutualisms with sea anemones".

    I agreed . The rainbow flag is a good one because it symbolizes the spectrum of diversity. There is hardly a thread of commonality between the factions other than they are not straight. I don't even know why the bi is in there except to increase the political base . It you need an animal try an Octopus . They are a queer ass animal for sure .

    Butterfly. Starts out as an ugly duckling* which feels "different" from an early age but eventually (often with the help of college LGBT societies) emerges from its cacoon and flies in rainbow hues.

    What other creature is as visually metaphoric for coming out?

    * Or a swan - beautiful but nasty creatures!

    Since we are not one community but many different community's: bears, leather queens, twinks, queens, masc, g0ys, lesbians, butch and lipstick wearing, bi's. There would not be one to represent all our different tribes.

    All that does is change colours, there is more to our many tribes than just colour.
