Welcome to the LGBTA Wiki
This wikia is meant to be a resource of members of the LGBTA+ community, people who are questioning, or anyone who's curious. Specifically this wikia is meant to explain identities that are often unknown or unheard of, and therefore have very little information about them elsewhere online. It's also meant to be a full resource, explaining everything this is to know know about any given identity, which can sometimes be hard to find as information can be scattered all across the internet.
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, 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.

Before you make a new article it's recommended that you read the New Page Guidelines and be sure to follow the Community Guidelines. 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 is was coined, who created the flag and when, as well as more information about the identity itself is always appreciated.

It has been brought to my attention that the button for talk pages is not showing up on most pages. Talk pages still exist. For the time being, please access talk pages by adding "Talk:" after the "wiki/" in the url, and before the article name. (For example: https://lgbta.wikia.org/wiki/Talk:Asexual). I am working on fixing this issue, but it will take some time so this is will have to make do for now.
Article of the Week
February 9, 2020
Despite the fact that the home page of this wikia is often one of the most viewed pages it was always kind of bare bones and boring. It was intended to just be a placeholder but I never got around to properly designing it. That is no longer. The main page is now more streamlined; it has two columns to make it look nicer, and I added important links like the new page guidelines. There is also a popular page tab and an article of the week tab. These two tabs will be updated every week.
