|Due to a large amount of misinformation, incorrect formatting, and unsourced text, we have created a new wiki! The end result will be everything already on Miraheze but better resourced and more organized. This is NOT replacing Miraheze, it is simply a better revision of it. You are welcome to continue making edits here, but I highly suggest you use the new wiki instead!|
Welcome to the LGBTQIA+ Wiki!
The LGBTQIA+ Wiki is a resource of LGBTQIA+ terminology and labels used by various queer communities, as well as the questioning and/or curious. The wiki is designed to be a helpful resource for explaining identities that are often unknown, unheard of, or difficult to find information for.
LGBTA stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and asexual/aromantic/agender. It's an adaptation of the initialism LGBT, which originated in the 1990s. It may be used to refer to anyone who is non-heterosexual, non-heteroromantic, and/or non-cisgender. Some popular variants include LGBTQ, LGBTIA, LGBTQA, or LGBTIAQ. The Q stands for questioning/queer, and the I stands for intersex. Other variations include LGBT+ or LGBTA+, which is used to encompass the full spectrums of sexuality and gender.

Where To Start
Questioning? Need some more information? Hopefully the categories below will be enlightening! You can also check out these resources: (part 1, part 2, part 3).
You can help out by creating an article for an identity that doesn't have a page. Before you make a new article, it's recommended that you read the Creating and Editing guide. Whilst anyone can make changes or new pages, your edits may not be accepted. Main reasons are below:
- Improper formatting or grammar
- No resources backing up the provided information
If your edit was rejected and does not match the above, feel free to ask a moderator.
If you want to help out but don't know where to start...
