WHAT IS LGBTQ+?

LGBTQ+ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender — but the plus that is usually included after the acronym encompasses a list of other identities that fall under the queer umbrella. The "+" aims to include those who identify as queer, intersex, asexual, demisexual, non-binary, gender fluid, pansexual, polyamorous, questioning and many more. A message from California Community Colleges Chancellor Eloy Ortiz Oakley
