WHAT DOES THAT MEAN BOOKLET

We know it can be confusing to hear all these ‘new’ letters and words, so the York LGBT Forum have produced a booklet to help explain some of the more commonly used LGBTQ+ terms.

This will hopefully help when you meet other people who have different genders and sexualities, or may even help if you are questioning or exploring your own. The most important thing to remember is that everybody’s gender and sexuality is valid and should be respected. It is often difficult to be ‘different’, but a little kindness and consideration can go a long way!

Click the thumbnail to view the booklet online or you can purchase your own hard copies to distrbute amongst your workplace or organsiation.
