Take this What LGBTQ Are You Quiz to find out are you part of the community. We update the quiz regularly and it’s the most accurate among the other quizzes.

Millions of Americans identify as LGBTQ, and, like any other group, they have their own vocabulary to express themselves and the issues they confront in a culture that does not completely accept or protect them.

If you want to be an ally, this terminology may be useful – but keep in mind that many have been used derogatorily by straight, white, cisgender (defined below) people and have been reclaimed by the LGBTQ community throughout time.

This is by no means an entire list, and because these concepts are so personal, they are likely to imply various things to different people. If you’re perplexed by a term and believe you can approach someone you care about in the LGBTQ community to help you understand it, go ahead and do so. But be careful not to place the responsibility of your education on others when there is a vast world of options available. Also, you must try to play this What LGBTQ Are You Quiz.

What LGBTQ Are You Quiz

Let us get this party started.
LGBTQ: An abbreviation for “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer.” Some people use the Q to represent “questioning,” which refers to persons who are unsure of their sexual orientation or gender identity. You may also come across the terms LGBT+, LGBT*, LGBTx, or LGBTQIA. Intersex is represented by the letter I and asexual/aromantic/gender is represented by the letter A.

Speaking of intersex, this is a person who is born with sex traits such as genitals or chromosomes that do not meet the traditional classifications of male or female.

Sex: The designation given to you at birth is based on your anatomical traits, chromosomes, and hormone levels.

Gender: The social constructions that we attribute to persons depending on their sex features. When you hear the term “gender stereotypes,” it refers to how we anticipate someone to act and behave based on their gender.

Queer: Originally a derogatory term, queer has evolved into an umbrella phrase to cover the numerous ways people reject binary classifications of gender and sexual orientation to express who they are.

About the quiz

Sexual orientation: A person’s perception of their sexuality. “There are three separate components of sexual orientation,” said Ryan Watson, a Human Development and Family Studies professor at the University of Connecticut. “It’s made up of three components: identity (I’m homosexual), conduct (I have sex with the same gender), and attraction (I’m sexually attracted to the same gender), and all three may not be present in all persons.” (Don’t use the phrase “sexual preference,” which implies it’s a choice that may be modified.)

Gay: A sexual orientation that denotes a person who is emotionally or sexually attracted to members of their own gender; typically applied to men.

A lesbian is a woman who has an emotional or sexual attraction to other women.

Bisexual: Someone who is emotionally or sexually attracted to both genders.

A pansexual person is someone who is attracted to people of all gender identities.

Asexual: A person who does not conform to customary sexual desire standards and expectations. Many members of the LGBTQ community regard sexuality as a continuum. Asexuality is only one end of the spectrum; there are identities (gray regions) in between. Asexual people may not be sexually active yet still masturbate. Or they may be attracted to someone but not want to have sex with them.

People who identify as graysexual are on the continuum between asexual and sexual, and may or may not experience the sexual attraction on a regular basis.

Aromantic: Someone who has little or no romantic attraction to others.
