BGLTQ Office Terminology

Language does not exist in a vacuum, but rather is subject to the specific historical, cultural, and political context in which it develops. Additionally, as groups of people come into contact with each other and discover shared traits and experiences—often aided by the increased globalization and relative anonymity made possible by the internet—new terms are coined, and existing terms are expanded to account for these newfound similarities and differences. It may be helpful to have resources to glean a rough approximation of what an unfamiliar term might mean to a person.
