- LGBTIQ+ is an inclusive acronym encompassing all minority sexual and gender identities, as well as atypical biological sex or Intersex. Trans* is inclusive of all transgender persons from transsexuals to transvestites, some of whom may identify as binary male or female, irrespective of biological/body sex and others as outside the binary of just two genders. Q+ includes all other identities including Asexual, Pansexual, Genderqueer, Non-binary, Questioning etc. People whose gender is non-conforming may also identify as a LGB or another minority sexual identity, or they may identify as heterosexual. No disrespect or erasure is intended in not using one of the longer LGBTIQ2SA type initialisms or terms appropriate to different languages and cultures. There is no international agreement on how to extend LGBT to be more inclusive of all Gender and Sexual Diversities.
- "Trans" may be used as an abbreviation shortcut for the entire non-conforming to birth sex transgender spectrum of Transvestite/Crossdresser, Non-, Pre- & Post-Op Transsexual, and those who identify as Trans/Transgender, apart from, or in addition to binary Male and Female.
- The entire LGBT alphabet soup could be expanded to at least the following:
- Obviously the above is a mouthful and any abbreviation of it is not an attempt to erase identity
