A dictionary of words, acronyms and expressions you may come across in the blogs of people in (or close to) the QUILTBAG community.
On the the right side of the page there are links where you can ask for clarifications, submit terms you'd like to see here, or look at up terms in alphabetical order.
If you would like to propose an edit, all you have to do is ask. You can also suggest ask that a term be defined or you can submit a term and its definition on your own.
Posts describing identities (e.g. gender, sexual orientation, etc.) are not definitive. This dictionary should not be used to tell someone how they should identify.
