Knowledge and resistance are Key.
LGBTQ+ is an acronym for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer. This is not it, there are many other defined and undefined sexual orientations and preferences. Some other defined identities are asexual, intersex and pansexual. These terms describe a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity. Though for many LGBTQ is a mysterious word, queer people have always existed. It is systematic social oppression and discrimination that made their existence hushed in society to a point where obtaining equal rights is a revolution. With Tickle.Life, let’s discover the lives, experiences and challenges faced by the queer community.

Flipping the Gender Marker
Abbey Tackett, Jul 11
I am having some difficulties with my name change that is causing that process to be delayed. But in the state of Ohio, I am able to apply to have the gender marker changed on my drivers license.
