For the purposes of this guide we are using the shortened umbrella term of LGBTTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Two-Spirit, Queer, and the + is to be inclusive of a range of identities not named) to describe an incredibly diverse and varied community. People's identities and orientations overlap - people may identify with a wide range of terms.
