Annotating relevant properties with instance of (P31) with value Wikidata property related to LGBT (Q63870987) or subclass thereof is useful for listing all properties related, possibly in some specific way, to gender. Another use-case is listing which properties have constraints that suggest or require statements using them to be complemented with statements using gender-related properties.
See also proposal for expanded set of Q63870987 subclasses (from 2021).
