    LGBTQIA+ Wiki

    Welcome to the LGBTQIA+ Wiki!

    The LGBTQIA+ Wiki is a resource of LGBTQIA+ terminology and labels used by various queer communities, as well as the questioning and/or curious. The wiki is designed to be a helpful resource for explaining identities that are often unknown, unheard of, or difficult to find information for.

    LGBTA stands for lesbiangaybisexual, transgender, and asexual/aromantic/agender. It's an adaptation of the initialism LGBT, which originated in the 1990s. It may be used to refer to anyone who is non-heterosexual, non-heteroromantic, non-cisgender, non-allosexual, and/or non-alloromantic. Some popular variants include LGBTQ, LGBTIA, LGBTQA, or LGBTIAQ. The Q stands for questioning/queer, and the I stands for intersex. Other variations include LGBT+ or LGBTA+, which is used to encompass the full spectrums of sexuality and gender.

    Helping Out

    You can help out by creating an article for an identity that doesn't have a page. Before you make a new article, it's recommended that you read the Creating and Editing guide. Please note that all changes, new pages, and new files must be approved by a moderator before they appear to the public. The moderation queue is checked at least twice a day. Whilst anyone can make changes or new pages, your edits may not be accepted. Main reasons are below:

    • Improper formatting or grammar
    • No resources backing up the provided information

    If your edit was rejected and does not match the above, feel free to ask a moderator.

    If you want to help out but don't know where to start...
