LGBTQ

In Sweden, the most common acronym used when referring to people who do not fit into the hetero- and binary gender norm is HBTQ (LGBTQ is a frequently used corresponding term in English). This acronym can be both criticised, expanded and/or reduced, however. H stands for homosexual and B for bisexual, and hence both these letters concern sexual orientation, or who a person tends to fall in love with or be attracted to. T stands for trans, which concerns how people define and express their gender, and Q stands for queer, which can both concern sexual orientation, gender identity, relationships and sexual practice and be an expression of a critical stance in relation to prevailing norms.
