Find out the full meaning of LGBTQI+

LGBTQI+ has been the debate in the country for the past weeks. It has created a lot of controversies in parliament and across various media platforms on whether Ghana should accept it or abort it.

However, most persons may think LGBTQI+ may refer to only Gays and Lesbians. Well this is quite true but that is not all. It talks about a lot of things.

Below is the meaning of LGBTQI+

The letter L

The letter 'L' here stands for Lesbian. This refers to a sexual attraction between to females.

The letter G

The letter 'G' here also refers to Gay. This is the exact opposite of Lesbian. Here two males get attracted sexually to each other.

The letter B

'B' here stands for Bisexual. Here an individual is sexually and/or romantically attracted to people of the same gender and people of another gender.

The letter T

The letter 'T' stands for Transgender. This is where persons change their sex or gender identity. It takes medical experts to make this happen.

The letter I

This means intersex . Here people are born with physical or biological sex characteristics such as reproductive or sexual anatomy, hormones or chromosomes that do not seem to fit the typical definitions of female or male.

The letter Q

The letter 'Q' refers to Queer. This is for sexual and gender minorities who are not heterosexual or are not cisgender (person whose sense of personal identity and gender corresponds with their birth sex)

The '+' sign represents and many more. This means other names which may be added to these letters.

As at now, it is an abomination to practice this in Ghana. Government is yet to debate on an anti-LGBTQI+ bill whether to make it a law or not.
