What Is LGBTQ
LGBTQ, also known as LGBTQIA and LGBTQ+, refers to individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning, intersex, and asexual. There are also individuals who consider themselves GSM (gender and sexual minorities) without identifying with any of the aforementioned labels.
