LBTQIA+ Glossary and Other Online Resources [web resource]

many hands-2724191_640Learning about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual communities and the issues impacting these communities is a life-long process.  The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual (LGBTQIA+) Resource Center at the University of California, Davis is a dynamic, responsive and collaborative organization that serves UC Davis and the surrounding region by providing a growing spectrum of programs, resources, outreach and advocacy. The LGBTQIA+ Resource Center offers some helpful online education resources, including:

  • LGBTQIA Ally Tips for those interested in learning more about how to practice allyship.
  • LGBTQIA Glossary. Terms and definitions are always evolving and changing and often mean different things to different people.  The glossary provides a starting point for discussion and understanding.
  • Pronouns used by the LGBTQIA+ community.
  • Words That Hurt. In the 2000s, the LGBTQIA Resource Center staff created a series of educational posters called “Words that Hurt and Why.”

Check out the (LGBTQIA+) Resource Center website for these resources and more.
