LGBTQ

WHAT IS LGBTQ?
You’ve probably seen it everywhere but you might not know what LGBTQ actually means. LGBTQ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning. This can mean a lot of different things, depending on who you talk to, but in general: A girl attracted to other girls is a lesbian. A guy who likes other guys is gay. A bisexual is someone who finds themselves attracted to both men and women. People who are transgender identify with the other sex. Someone who is physically a girl may feel more like a boy. Some people even have surgeries so they can change their bodies to fit their gender identity. Queer is used as a term to encompass lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. Finally, questioning is used for people who are unsure of their sexual orientation.
