Primarily used by teens, the hashtag 'ItsTheLGBT' is helping young members of the LGBT community proudly express, embrace and celebrate their sexuality with the world.

Pink News reports the hashtag 'is here to stand against all detractors and protect young, out LGBT people with its overwhelming joy, warmth and acceptance'.

Members from the LGBT community are posting photographs ranging range from selfies in their bedrooms to snaps with their friends and smiling profile shots.

The hashtag comes amid news that Australia's vote to legalise gay marriage has seen support fall four per cent in a fortnight and opposition rise three per cent, according to the latest Guardian Essential poll. Fortunately, though, the 'yes' vote still leads.

ELLE recently delved into the lives of five women about the first time they admitted they were gay or bisexual, so we're loving seeing Twitter users promote self-love and solidarity when it comes to something so personal and universal as sexuality.

Keep up the good work, Twitter!
