Go with the genre it belongs to; SF and Fantasy and Mysteries often have LGBT main characters, by the way. They don't have neon signs on the book identifying them as LGBT.

In other words, if her orientation isn't a key plot point it's not the best choice for a keyword.

So if it's a military SF novel, you might use SF, military, space opera, first contact, etc.

That doesn't mean keeping her in the closet either.
Okay, so I'm good with not using the keyword on the series as a whole. I might use it on the second book which includes a major subplot about the character falling in love with another woman and coming out, but not the others.
