When you see or hear someone say 2SLGBTQ+ it’s meant to represent diverse sexual and gender identities. 2SLGBTQ+ stands for Two-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and + which leaves room for people to self identify in a way that makes sense for them.
Other versions of the acronym, like QUILTBAG may include the words Intersex, Asexual, Questioning, Gender diverse and Undecided. For consistency, we will use 2SLGBTQ+ throughout this guide.
