MLM is abbreviation for (depending on the context) three different terms:

Multi-Level Marketing (basically pyramid schemes)

Men Loving Men (self-explanatory)

Marxism-Leninism-Maoism (synthesis of Maoism and classic MLism)

be sure to watch for context bc these are all obviously VERY different concepts (or else you’ll be pretty fucking confused)

Initialism, Acronym. MLM: meaning Man Loves Man, or Men (who) Love Men. Often used in the trans community.
Trans mlm can have a harder time feeling accepted in the gay community because they're trans, but they are valid and deserve love just like cis mlm.

see also Multi-Level Marketing. A scheme in which a person (as a "seller") buys a certain amount of product from a "distributor", and then sells for a profit. The seller must then kick back some of his profit to his distributor. In turn all the other sellers this person has recruited and distributes product to must kick back some of their profits to him.

Amway is the prototypical MLM. Usually only the founders of a MLM profit from the scheme. Some MLM's are blatant pyramid schemes, although one can argue all MLM's are fraudulent. Look for MLM ads in bus shelters and on telephone poles at intersections.

An acronym that stands for male loves male, muslim lives matter, and multi-level-marketing.

Male loves male is males who are attracted to other males, example, bisexual, gay, and pansexual men. Trans guys are also included, since they're in fact men, you imbeciles.

Muslim lives matter is a movement which brings equality to those who are muslim, similar to which the BLM movement aims to achieve.

Multi-level-marketing is pretty much just a scam.
