What is the "QUILTBAG"?

A lesson from the IYG "Growing Up LGBT" summit, March 2018

Several of us attended the IYG youth summit in March 2018 and had a great time. One of the things we learned was a new way to talk about the LGBT community. The term "QUILTBAG" is used by some individuals and groups instead of LGBTQ, to be even more inclusive of different identities. The Urban Dictionary definition goes like this : "An acronym to be used instead of LGBTQQ2IA*"
Q - Queer and Questioning
U - Unidentified
I - Intersex
L - Lesbian
T - Transgender, Transexual
B - Bisexual
A - Asexual 
G - Gay, Genderqueer
