LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) as an initialism is an attempt at recognizing myriad of complex and intersecting identities within this population. Yet, it is not an entirely-inclusive term. For example, individuals with a spectrum of additional identities often go unnamed and may feel further marginalized with the singular, overarching usage of LGBTQ+. If you would like more information about other terminology related to the LGBTQ+ community, please check our definitions tab.
