LGBTQ+ is an "inclusive" way to represent all the different identities in the longer acronym but here's a breakdown of what each of the letters in LGBTQQIAAP mean.


Lesbian: a woman who is attracted to other women


Gay: a man who is attracted to other men or broadly people who identify as homosexual


Bisexual: a person who is attracted to both men and women


Transgender: a person whose gender identity is different from the sex the doctor put down on their birth certificate


Queer: originally used as a hate term, some people want to reclaim the word, while others find it offensive. It can be a political statement, suggest that someone doesn't want to identify with "binaries" (e.g. male v female, homosexual v straight) or that they don't want to label themselves only by their sexual activity


Questioning: a person who is still exploring their sexuality or gender identity


Intersex: a person whose body is not definitively male or female. This may be because they have chromosomes which are not XX or XY or because their genitals or reproductive organs are not considered "standard"


Allies: a person who identifies as straight but supports people in the LGBTQQIAAP community


Asexual: a person who is not attracted in a sexual way to people of any gender


Pansexual: a person whose sexual attraction is not based on gender and may themselves be fluid when it comes to gender or sexual identity
