The Supreme Court on Thursday refused to modify its 2014 order on transgenders while clarifying that lesbians, gays and bisexuals are not the third gender or transgender.

The LGBT community, however, seemed divided on the clarification. While some thanked the apex court for granting recognition to transgenders, other felt it was not fair to marginalise lesbians, gays and bisexuals.
