What does LGBTQ stand for?
Excellent question! LGBTQ is an acronym for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer and/or Questioning. LGBTQ is often used to refer to the larger community of folks who may not identify as straight/heterosexual or cisgender (meaning a person identifies with the sex they were assigned at birth). This broader interpretation of LGBTQ is more inclusive of all the various identities that a person may use outside of the terms lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or questioning. It is important to note that LGBTQ is only one of many acronyms that may be used for the community, other common combinations are LGBTQIA (where the 'I' and 'A' stand for intersex and asexual), GLBTIQ, and TLGBQ.
