LGBTQQIAF [Apr. 3rd, 2005|06:36 pm]

No not just some random letters, I saw it on this post about a conference. Anyway the letters stand for:

Gay
Lesbian
Bisexual
Transgendered
Queer
Questioning
Intersex
Allie
Fluid

It A very long list, more than a little hard to remember and unwieldy, not that I think anyone should be missed off, it just seems like it easier be easier to say who is not covered than who is.

Maybe I've been spending too much time around Marketing people but I do feel that some soundbite friendly needs to be found. I can't see anyone reeling off 'LGBTQQIAF' on the Six O'Clock News or even Newsnight or taking time to explain what each of the letter stand for, which I think it was bugs me the most. All the people who would not fit on the list already have so many false impressions of the people who are, this will confuse them more and add another barrier, a 'Them and Us' situation.

Or this could just be me being all angsty over not being like everyone else and still wanting to be accepted as a good person with worth.
