Resources on LGBTQ Inclusion

Over the last 35 years, the language we use to talk about this issue has shifted. In the 1980s, it was common to speak of homosexuality. Now the preferred language is LGBTQ persons or the LGBTQ community. For an up-to-date summary of preferred language, see the GLAAD Media Reference Guide.
