LGBTQ is an acronym that consists of both sexualities and genders (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer).
A person’s sexuality does not determine their gender and vice versa.
Sexual Identity is about who we are romantically or sexually attracted to, whilst our gender identity is our psychological sex (how we feel and think of ourselves).
Our Sexuality might be heterosexual, lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual.
Whilst our Gender Identity might be male, female, non-binary, gender fluid, trans.
