KAMI learned from liberateyourself that LGBT is an acronym that stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bis*xual and Trans and is used to designate a community of people whose s*xual or gender identities can create shared political and social concerns
Though everyone celebrates LGBT all year round, LGBT Pride month is celebrated every June which also marks the month that sames*x marriage was legalized in the United States.
This month, millions of people celebrated LGBT.
Let’s get to know more of these terms:
Lesbian: A woman who is attracted to other women.
Gay: A man who is attracted to other men.
Bis*xual: An individual who is attracted to both genders.
Trans: An umbrella term that seeks to incorporate individuals whose gender identities do not match biologically, for example, somebody who is born male-bodied and identifies as a woman. The term ‘Trans’ includes those who are pre or post surgery and those who do not wish to undertake surgery to alter their s*x.
A distinction is posed between male and female which is a biological given at birth, and gender (man/woman) which is a sociological and psychological construction concerned with characteristics that are not biological.
