As a community, the letters LGBTQ+ represent our family. It is critical to understand our community’s proper “categories” and understand what each letter represents.
A woman who is physically, emotionally, or romantically attracted to another woman.
People who are physically, emotionally, romantically or spiritually attracted to the same sex. Typically refers to men, but can encompass all genders.
Individuals who are physically, romantically, emotionally, and/or spiritually attracted to men and women within or outside of the gender binary.
People whose gender identity and/or gender expression differ from the sex they were assigned at birth.
Queer or Questioning:
Often used to express fluid identities. A person who is exploring their sexual orientation or sexual identity.
Encompassing anyone who does not fit in any definition of sexuality. Pansexual, cisgender, asexual and intersex are terms we didn’t hear just a few years ago. Today, more and more individuals are coming out embracing who they are and who they love. We welcome everyone.
