LGBTQIA+ acronym


LGBT flag


The shortened international form of the acronym is used to speak inclusively about LGBTQQIP2SAA (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Pansexual, 2 Spirit, Asexual, Allied).
This is a more comprehensive and therefore more accurate representation of the human experience. Writing it with six letters allows for a greater balance between letters designating sexual orientations, L.G.B, and those designating gender identities, T.Q.I.
