A Guide to the LGBTQ+ Community

If you are confused about the LGBTQ+ community, I am writing this to help you out. If you are homophobic and reading this, then you shouldn't go to places that don't agree with your opinion and just spew out your opinion on something unnecessary. I am trying to be helpful and homophobes yelling at me is doing just the opposite of that. You can have an opinion, but you should be respectful and polite about it. Thank you!!


2. What are the different sexualities the community members can identify with?

Each letter in LGBTQA stands for a sexuality.

L - Lesbian (a female who is sexually attracted to other females)

G - Gay (a male who is sexually attracted to other males)

B - Bisexual/Bi (an individual who is sexually attracted to both males and females)

T - Transgender/Trans (an individual who feels as if they should have been born the opposite gender)

Q - Queer/Questioning (an individual who is unsure of their sexual orientation)

A - Asexual/Ace (someone who is not sexually attracted to any gender whatsoever, but are still capable of feeling love and romantic desire, just not sexual desire)
