How Do You Know About LGBT

LGBT stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. It encompasses people whose gender identity or expression does not match the sex they were assigned at birth.


Sexual orientation refers to a person’s emotional, physical and/or sexual attraction to another person. Gender identity is a person’s internal, personal sense of being a man or a woman (or boy or girl).

For some people, their gender identity does not fit neatly into those two choices. For example, some people identify as both men and women, or as neither. And some biological men identify as women, and some biological women identify as men. Transgender is an umbrella term that describes people whose gender identity or expression differs from expectations associated with the sex assigned to them at birth.

Not everyone whose appearance or behaviour is different from societal expectations identifies as transgender. Many transgender people do not undergo medical interventions to alter their bodies, but some do. People who transition (change their appearance and/or body to match their internal sense of gender) often start by expressing their preferred gender in situations where they feel safe. They typically work up to living full-time as their preferred gender by making many changes a little at a time.

The process of transitioning can be lengthy and difficult, and not all transgender people choose to transition. Some live part-time in their preferred gender role without ever changing their primary sex characteristics or legal sex designation. People who don’t transition may still dress and behave in ways that are not traditionally associated with their birth sex. They may also use a different name and pronoun than the ones they were given at birth.

Transgender people often face discrimination and exclusion in many areas of life, including housing, education, employment, healthcare, and social services. This is especially true for transgender people who don’t conform to traditional gender norms and for those who are perceived to be transgender by others.

There is no single reason why someone may identify as LGBTQ. For some people, it’s a matter of biology or genetics. For others, it’s a question of personal identity. And for many people, it’s a combination of both.

No one can tell another person’s sexual orientation or gender identity. Only the person themself can know for sure. And even then, people’s orientations and identities can change over time. It’s important to remember that there is no one “right” way to be LGBT. Everyone experiences it in their own unique way.

If you think you might be LGBT, the best thing to do is talk to someone you trust about it. This could be a friend, family member, doctor, therapist, or any other trusted adult. They can provide support and resources that can help you through this process.

The LGBT community has come a long way in recent years, but there is still much work to be done. Transgender people, in particular, face many challenges. They often suffer from discrimination, exclusion, and violence. But despite the challenges, many transgender people find strength and resilience in their identity. And as society becomes more accepting of diverse genders and sexualities, it’s hoped that the lives of transgender people will become easier and safer.
