QUEER*

* We use ‘queer’ to refer to those individuals and communities who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, non-binary, genderqueer, asexual/agender, and/or two spirit as well as other emerging or minoritized gender expansive and sexual/affectional identities. We recognize that individuals and community identities are not static but consist of dynamic intersections between race, ethnicity, class, gender identity and expression, sexual and/or affectional orientation, age, ability status, spiritual or religious belief system, Indigenous, cultural, and ethnic heritage, and more. We understand that this language is individually, socially, and culturally contextualized and ever changing.
