15 Important LGBTQ+ Terms To Know

June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month. I’ve talked about some of the most adorable moments at pride so far and given you some suggestions on how you can celebrate with rainbow beauty looks and manicures. Given that the month is all about equality, visibility, love, and support, I thought now would be a good time to bring up some different gender identity, sexual orientation, and LGBTQ+ terms.

By no means is this an exhaustive list of all of the terms out there. What’s more, there are also people who choose not to define themselves in any way. With those considerations in mind, I thought it would still be helpful to highlight some of the terms in the hopes of creating more understanding, encouraging discussion, and helping people to realize that there is a varied spectrum for sexuality and gender. With those thoughts in mind, have a look at different LGBTQ+ terms. Feel free to add some more of your own in the comments.
