LGBT Terms and Definitions

Common LGBT Terms and Definitions used in American English

LGBT, LGBTQ, LGBTQA, TBLG: These acronyms refer to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning, and Asexual or Ally. Although all of the different identities within “LGBT” are often lumped together (and share sexism as a common root of oppression), there are specific needs and concerns related to each individual identity.

LGBT Legal Rights New

LGBT Legal Rights - What are your legal rights? Marriage, housing, or discrimination? Ask away!

Rights affecting lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people vary greatly by country or jurisdiction – encompassing everything from the legal recognition of same-sex marriage to the death penalty for homosexuality. Notably, as of January 2021, 29 countries recognized same-sex marriage.

Freedom of speech and association are protected under the First Amendment. This Amendment protects the right to organize and urge government to end discrimination, to recognize lesbian and gay relationships, and to adopt laws prohibiting discrimination in the private sector.

LGBT in the Media

LGBT in the Media - Top stories in the media related to our LGBT Community.

Overwhelmingly, the portrayal of LGBT people in the American media centers on white LGBT people and their experiences. LGBT persons of color are severely underrepresented in the media in comparison to their actual population within the community. Most LGBT characters who appear in mainstream media are white.
