Not sure what all of the the letters mean in LGBTQIA+? We've got you.
L = lesbian (cisgender or transgender woman who is attracted to the same sex)
G = gay (generally used to describe a cisgender or transgender man who is attracted to the same sex. Also used as a broad term to describe any human who is attracted to the same sex as they identify as.)
T = transgender (a person who identifies as a different sex than the body they were born into.)
Q = queer (an umbrella term for any sex or gender minority who are not heterosexual and/or cisgender.)
I = intersexual (a person born with both the sexual organs that identify a male and female body.)
A = asexual (not feeling sexually attracted to any person on the sexual or gender spectrum.)
+ = As we evolve as a society, we're learning that binary definitions are a societal construct. We're learning more every day about the spectrum of sexual identity (who one goes to bed as) and sexuality (who one goes to bed with). The + gives nod to that spectrum.
