L = lesbian
a homosexual woman.

G = gay
a homosexual man

B = bisexual
sexually attracted not exclusively to people of one particular gender; attracted to both men and women.

T = transgender + transexual
Transgender is denoting or relating to a person whose sense of personal identity and gender does not correspond with their birth sex.

Transexual is the old term for transgender and some people still identify with it as they believe being trans to be more of a medical condition rather than an identity for them personally.
Q = queer + questioning
people who are figuring out their sexual orientation or gender identity
Queer is an umbrella term for all of lgbtq+

P = pansexual
I am pansexual
not limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity.

A = asexual + ally
Asexual is without sexual feelings or associations. "asexual individuals may still experience attraction but this attraction doesn't need to be realized in any sexual manner"

An ally is a straight ally, or heterosexual ally is a heterosexual and/or cisgender person who supports equal civil rights, gender equality, and LGBT social movements, and challenges homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia.x

I = intersex
Intersex people are individuals born with any of several variations in sex characteristics including chromosomes, gonads, sex hormones, or genitals that, according to the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, "do not fit the typical definitions for male or female bodies".

T = two spirited
Native American term.
The dictionary refers to two spirited as:
“Two-spirit” refers to a person who identifies as having both a masculine and a feminine spirit, and is used by some Indigenous people to describe their sexual, gender and/or spiritual identity.



I think that’s all. If I missed one out can someone kindly give the definition in the comments! Also if you have any questions feel free to ask!

No.
Although they are very similar!
Androgynous is about appearance. It’s similar to cross dressing. It’s indeterminate sex. It’s a mixture of questioning and two spirited. And appearing to be one sex but acting the other. It’s very confusing

Transexual is a person who is only attracted to transgender persons.
Sorry but this is untrue. Transsexual is the old term for transgender and some people still identify with it as they believe being trans to be more of a medical condition rather than an identity for them personally.
Queer doesn't mean unsure that's questioning , queer is now used as an umbrella for the whole LGBT community
Two spirit is a native American idea and many people within the community would take issue with it being included as lots of people disagree it exists.

Furries are just people cosplaying as animals and dressing up. They don't actually believe they are the animal unlike people who are 'otherkin' that do.
The vast vast majority of the LGBT community do not want other kin included as many people find it a ridiculous concept that discredits the actual community and trans people in particular

I know you mean well but I would advise researching properly before making a thread like this. Lots of people are against LGBT and against the + part of it in particular. Including spurious ideas like furries and two spirit (which I have never seen included in the extended acronym) doesn't help our cause at all and neither does misinformation.
