We commonly hear the word LGBTQ community used for the gay community. LGBT means lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. But many people wonder what is this Q?
Q stands for either "Questioning" or "Queer".
Queer has many meanings. It means one may be any one of those letters (L, G, B, T) or could be all of those, and it encompasses people who may not be even aware of that. Not knowing about that is also considered OK.
Q even stands for "Questioning" where someone is trying to figure out their gender identity and still questioning their sexual orientation who come under this community.
