what does lgbt mean
An umbrella term for people whose gender identity and/or expression is different from cultural expectations based on the sex they were assigned at birth. Being transgender does not imply any specific sexual orientation. Therefore, transgender people may identify as straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, etc.
A general term used for a variety of conditions in which a person is born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t seem to fit the typical definitions of female or male.
Denoting or relating to a person who does not subscribe to conventional gender distinctions, but identifies with neither, both or a combination of male and female genders.
A non-binary gender experience that refers to a wide multiplicity of genders that can (or not) tend to the infinite (meaning that this experience can go beyond the current knowledge of genders). This experience can be either simultaneously or over time.
A term that can be literally translated as ‘without gender.’ It can be seen either as a non-binary gender identity or as a statement of not having a gender identity. People who identify as agender may describe themselves as one or more of the following: genderless, lacking gender or gender neutral.
A gender identity that refers to a gender that varies over time. A gender fluid person may at any time identify as male, female, neutrois or any other non-binary identity, or some combination of identities. Their gender can also vary at random or vary in response to different circumstances.
A woman who is emotionally, romantically or sexually attracted to other women.
A person emotionally, romantically or sexually attracted to more than one sex, gender or gender identity, though not necessarily simultaneously in the same way or to the same degree.
The sexual attraction, romantic love or emotional attraction toward people regardless of their sex or gender identity.
The lack of a sexual attraction or desire for other people.
The attraction to multiple genders. Bisexuality and pansexuality are forms of polysexuality. Polysexuality generally rejects the idea of a gender binary, the idea that there are only two genders (male and female), rather than a spectrum of genders.
