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.
