Why using appropriate words matters in our LGBTQ+ community
July 31, 2018

I am often asked why it is so important to use other words like queer, pansexual or non-binary and not “stick with the basics” like gay or lesbian.

My response is "because words matter!"

Just like our struggle to achieve marriage equality, the word “marriage” matters as it implies and defines the institution of marriage; not separate but equal like “union.” Therefore, I patiently explain that words like queer, non-binary and gender-queer also matter. When I am introducing myself at a professional presentation, I say I am a “white, spiritual, cis-gender, gay male." These words (or some would call labels) matter as they define further who I am as a person. To be inclusive is to be accepting and affirming of everything about someone as a person.

May 14, 2018

There might not be a more difficult path in life than that of a transgender person. Often ostracized in mainstream society, many endure a lifetime of abuse (mental, physical, and sexual), not because the gender they have been assigned at birth does not match who they are, but because our society lacks understanding and education about gender and gender identity.
