The expanded term used for the community can feel like a mouthful, but it's important to be as inclusive as possible. There are some who do not feel continued categorization is a good thing, and that makes total sense. We cannot deny that there is power in identifying with a community, just like we can't deny there is power in living unlabeled.
On this page, we will do our best to use language that reflects the spectrum of identity, whether that's labeled or unlabeled. If you feel unrepresented, please let us know.
We'd love to hear it!
This is by no means an exhaustive list of information, so please feel free to shoot us a chat or email with additional content ideas.
