Definition - What does LGBTQIA mean?

LGBTQIA is the abbreviation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer, Intersex, and Asexual. It pertains to sexual identities outside the heterosexual sexual identity.

Kinkly explains LGBTQIA

The use of LGBTQIA to describe the gender non-conforming collective was initiated by community activists and allies. It was later adopted by the public as the politically correct way to address community members. It may be used alternately with LGBT and LGBTQ, more popular abbreviations that omit people who identify as intersex and asexual.

Quotes

  • I'm kind of a good girl - and I'm not. I'm a good girl because I really believe in love, integrity, and respect. I'm a bad girl because I like to tease. I know that I have sex appeal in my deck of cards. But I like to get people thinking. That's what the stories in my music do.
    - Katy Perry
