Not sure what I'm talking about? That's okay, I looked it up. I knew the LGBT part - Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender. The QIA part I didn't know - Queer, Intersex and Asexual. I thought Q was questioning but I read that many people who don't "adhere to sexual and/or gender norms use" Queer in a positive light. Intersex is a general term used for a variety of conditions in which a person is born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn't seem to fit the typical definitions of female or male. And someone who identifies as Asexual is without sexual feelings or associations.
