Sexuality and Gender

Questioning

People who are unsure about/do not want to associate with any identity, or people from identities other than commonly known.

The questioning phase of one's sexuality and gender is exploring identity by people who may still be unsure of what they identify as, or those who do not wish to identify themselves with particular labels. Often added as a "Q" in "LGBTQ", it signifies that it is okay to not know, and you could be anything from all the identities that are there. There are many more sexualities and gender identities that exist apart from LGBT. They are all discussed in this category.

Frequently Asked Questions

You can use they/them. Some people even use their assigned pronoun and the pronoun they strongly feel for (ex. I am she/her, they/them).

Facebook gives you an option for 56 genders and there are multiple sexualities as well. However, it might be possible that you are defined by none of them, and that's okay. It is about what you identify as, you can create your own label.
