I’ve recently been reading a lot about sexuality. Not just one sexuality, not even just my own sexuality — all sexualities. Or at least, all that I can find definitions of and information about.
And through this I’ve found that I’m using the wrong terminology in my posts. I’ve been using “LGBT” and “gay and lesbian” to describe a community of people that encompasses more than just lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders. I’ve decided to use the umbrella term “queer” to refer to the entire community instead. It encompasses everyone, regardless of whether or not their sexuality corresponds with the letters L, G, B or T.
