LGBTQ+ Glossary

This is a reference source for LGBTQ+ terminology. It includes orientations, and will later include pronouns and genders. I know that there are countless pronouns, orientations, and genders, so it is very difficult to include them all. Because of this, please let me know if is something that you are aware of that is not on this list. Also, if a definition is incorrect, please let me know. Lastly, feel free to ask me any questions about this. Thank you.
