Common Ground

Gay.  Lesbian.  Bisexual.  Transgender.  Questioning.  These are the terms we use to describe people that act in a certain way, but what do those words really mean?  And what do they have to do with how we express affection?  How we define a community?

Whether you are a teen hoping to help your family become supportive or a caregiver hoping to connect with the youth in your life, the attached glossary of GLBTQ Terms and Definitions can help you better understand sexual orientation and gender identity issues.
