What is LGBTQ?

Category: College/Campus News

Published: Oct 12 2011 12:00AM

LGBTQ represents a diverse range of gender expressions and sexual and affectional orientations.

Traditionally, this stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, and queer or questioning. However, identity labels vary considerably, with new identities such as pansexual, asexual, and androgynous emerging, even as some people reject the limitations of any such identity label. When we engage in LGBT advocacy, we not only speak for the civil rights of sexual minorities we also strike a blow for greater freedom for all people. We envision a world in which we can be as feminine and masculine as we choose, a world in which we are free to engage in consensual, loving relationships as we choose, a world which embraces diverse family forms, and a world in which a well-informed, authentic sexuality is a basic human right.
