A more inclusive acronym

We’ve all seen the different acronyms like LGBT, LGBTQ+ and everything in between. Do you know what they all mean? The initialisms can sometimes being confusing and unintentionally leave some out. As our community evolves so will our acronyms.

An alternative, more comprehensive (though not exhaustive) acronym is LGBTQQIP2SAA+: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Queer, Intersex, Pansexual, Two-Spirit (2S), Androgynous, and Asexual. Occasionally, we’ll see a third A for Ally, and sometimes it’s preceded by an S for Straight Ally.

Projects like The River of Pride Flag and The Unity Pride Flag are building awareness to our diverse community.
