LGBTQ+ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and any other queer identities. The Q+ is there to include all of the other identities that aren’t listed in the LGBT acronym.

For lots of people, being part of the LGBTQ+ community is an important part of their identity. There are loads of ways that you can support LGBTQ+ volunteers and members in your unit.

The chatting about LGBTQ+ topics in your unit page from Girlguiding has a super helpful glossary of terms and links to inclusive unit activities. There is also advice available for supporting lesbian, gay, and bisexual members, as well as supporting trans, and young trans members.
