LGBTQQIA+: This acronym has come to represent a wide variety of communities, spanning gender and sexual identities. By definition, LGBTQQIA+ reflects Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, and Asexual communities. This acronym has undergone a number of changes in recent decades. Historically, it was simply GLB (Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual). However, social movements within subsets of the population advocated for change and expansion, and the acronym continues to grow. Concerns surrounding the inevitability of excluding particular groups has led to the proliferation of the acronym GSM (gender and sexual minorities), which is regarded as being more inclusive.
