Talking Lgbtq+

Are there any LGBTQ+ veggiers out there?I saw a thread like this from awhile ago and I thought why not bring it back.I think it would be great to have a thread where we can talk about issues and say who we are.(Hetrosexuals are welcome too!) I will start off.

Hello, my name is Beth and I'm a teenage lesbian.
(One last thing, LGBTQ stands for Lesbian,gay,trans,and queer.But the official acronym as of today is (I think is) LGBTQQIP2SAA)

Or LGBTQQIP2SAA

My usual answer: I have never heard a convincing reason to eat meat.

I question the sustainability of acronyms that sound like a sneeze when pronounced as a word.

Bi male here.

Sneezing is all I can think about whenever I see the acronym now..I thought bi guys were fictional,I have been proven wrong.

Two Q’s to cover both bases (queer and questioning);
I for Intersex, people with two sets of genitalia or various chromosomal differences;
P for Pansexual, people who refuse to be pinned down on the Kinsey scale;
2S for Two-Spirit, a tradition in many First Nations that considers sexual minorities to have both male and female spirits;
A for Asexual, people who do not identify with any orientation; and
A for Allies, recognizing that the community thrives best with loving supporters, although they are not really part of the community itself.

40-something lesbian here, and also a strict vegetarian (not Vegan, but don't eat dairy).

Thanks for explaining the whole acronym, I had no idea it had gotten so long! :-)

Hey there! I always feel pushed out of these kinds of things so hopefully that won't happen here . I'm pansexual, married to a man though typically more strongly attracted to feminines (no matter what category they consider themselves). I've found a lot of places that immediately seem to push me to the wayside because of being married, but being married doesn't change my sexuality 0_0.

Anyway, nice to meet everyone. Sorry for the mini-rant haha.

55 year old gay man...came out of the closet at age 17 in high school and never looked back. As far on the gay side as one can get on the kinsey scale. Never been with a woman and never will.

Thanks for he explanation of all those letters. I appreciate that more people of different sexualities and preferences are coming out. There should be room for us all. I do like the term "queer community" instead of all those letters though, but the letters do bring out the idea that it's not all just gay, lesbian and bisexual.

Not real into the "gay scene" anymore, but enjoy participating in a gay bowling league once a week, reading gay men's fiction and doing things like this week is the Tampa International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. Locals should check it out.

I'm a 22 year old gay vegan male

I was just about to post a thread like this until I saw yours first! I was wondering how popular vegetarianism/veganism is in the LGBT world? Personally, I know one vegetarian but I work in a gay bar and when I mention I'm vegan they all laugh and think it's ridiculous!

^I'd love to know the answer to this too.

I have a few LGBTQAI+ friends, of them there's maybe half who are vegetarian or vegan. The others all just say "But bacon though!". :S

I will say this, at 22 and for as long as I was involved in party culture, I really wasn't able to think about vegetarianism. It's a pretty selfish time and environment. It's not a bad thing, I think we all need that time when we can just be about 'us'. But that you've already decided to be vegan at that age? Is awesome.

So, I just posted a reply and figured I'd better also do a bit of an introduction-

I'm cis-gendered, not completely straight, ally of the LGBTQAI+ community. I've only ever dated dudes, but that's been more a case of lack of opportunity, than lack of anything else

Ahhh the bacon response, I was never really bothered about bacon too much when I was an omnivore so I just can't see the hype around it, personally!

I totally agree with you Tiger Lilly there is nothing wrong with being selfish at this age, people do need to explore and find themselves a little more before changing their lives.

I became vegan completely randomly though to be fair, I just decided to do it for a week as a little health kick but then loved it so much and carried on

Asexual, still-trying-to-figure-out-my-pronouns-but-she/her/hers-and-they/them/theirs-works 20-something person. ;o

I think QUILTBAG is a good acronym. Queer, Unisex, Intersex, Lesbian, Trans, Bisexual, Asexual/Agender, Gay.

I'm shocked to see that anyone besides me actually labels themselves as pan! Love it!

Pan girl (cis girl if you want to get technical) mostly vegan (I still slip up sometimes)

I'm gay, Genderfluid, Poly, and greyromanitc.
And btw to anyone that's reading this, if you can't remember all of the letters in LGBTQQIA, you can just say Mogai. It stands for Marginalized Orientations, Genders, and Intersex. It basically covers everything

I'm a cisgender woman married to a guy, though I dated women when I was younger. I likely fall somewhere on the bi-romantic asexual spectrum, but I'm pregnant. So... I have no idea!

I learned of GRSM (Gender, Romantic, and Sexual Minorities) recently and I like that acronym the because it seems to be the very inclusive (it's missing intersexed tho, so yay for learning MOGAI!) and it's easy on the dyslexic brain.

Anyway, for what it's worth I guess I'm demisexual and probably grey-romantic.
