Welcome to the LGBTA Wiki
The LGBTA+ Wiki is meant to be a resource for members of the LGBTA+ community, people who are questioning, or anyone who's curious. Particularly this wiki is meant to be a helpful resource to explain everything this is to know about identities that are often unknown, unheard of, or are hard to find information on.
Where To Start
LGBTA stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and asexual/aromantic/agender. It's an adaptation of the initialism LGBT, which originated in the 1990s. It may be used to refer to anyone who is non-heterosexual, non-heteromantic, and/or non-cisgender. Some popular variants include LGBTQ, LGBTIA, LGBTQA, and LGBTIAQ. The Q stands for questioning/queer, and the I stands for intersex. Others include LGBT+ or LGBTA+, which is used to encompass the full spectrums of sexuality and gender.
If you are questioning you can browse our sexuality, ace-spec, aro-spec, gender, or xenogender categories. If you are specifically questioning your orientation you can check out the three part orientation resources here: (part 1, part 2, part 3).
If you're new here it can also be helpful to check out the FAQ.
You can help out by creating an article for an identity that doesn't have a page. Before you make a new article it's recommended that you read the style guide and the new page guidelines. and be sure to follow the community guidelines.
- You don't have to ask to make an article.
- You don't have to personally identify as something to make an article about it (as long as you know enough to give an accurate description).
If you want to help out but don't know where to start you can also help by adding relevant information to one of our stub articles. Information like who coined the term, when it was coined, who created the flag and when, as well as more information about the identity itself is always appreciated. You may also want to read the editing guidelines.
English is not my native language so don't be surprised if there's misspellings/broken grammar and such. /g
Also, all flags here are free to use for anything! no credits needed. :) /g
I feel shy adding them to the main pages of theirs so I'll make a blog with them instead. Anyone who'd add these flag…
Typology is a system of grouping individuals together based on certain traits. These are not physical traits, but rather cognitive and/or behavioural traits making up a single personality. For example, saying that everyone who is outspoken, determined, and witty is a certain personality type.
