Terminology and Flags
Sexual, romantic, and gender identities are very personal and often change from person to person. The information below is simply a general guide to some popular LGBT community terms. When dealing with these terms it is important to remember that gender identity, romantic attraction, and sexuality are independent of each other. Some of these terms can be used in a derogatory way and care should be used when speaking with someone about their gender identity, sexuality, or romantic attraction. It is always a good idea to ask the person which terms they prefer.
