LGBTI+ Inclusive Language Guide

An informative list of LGBTI+ terminology to help improve your communication skills with the LGBTI+ community

At the LGBTI Legal Service Inc. we pride ourselves in delivering exceptional service to all of our clients. Our service aims to empower and assist the LGBTI+ community with their legal matters. A significant aspect of our service involves communicating and engaging with our community.

To be best equipped to effectively engage with our community, we must be well versed in the most up-to-date LGBTI+ specific terminology. We have created an LGBTI+ language guide that can be used as a point of reference for individuals and organisations when engaging with the LGBTI+ community. The terms in this guide are not exhaustive. We acknowledge that new terminology arises frequently and that the terms in this guide may have different connotations depending on regional and cultural differences.
