An '''identity''' is how a person thinks of [[pronouns#they|themself]], and what words they use to label themself. This includes identities in and related to the LGBT community. Many identities in this community have their own [[flags|pride flags]], which use colour symbolism to tell about that identity.
==Romantic/sexual identities==
''See main article: [[romantic and sexual orientation]]''
Some romantic and/or sexual identities include lesbian, gay, bisexual, and asexual. These are identities, but not gender identities.
==Gender identities==
''See main article: [[gender identity]]''
Some gender identities include the two [[binary genders]], [[female]] and [[male]], and many others. There are some identities that are considered gender identities by only some of the people who have those identities, such as [[androgyne]], [[boi]], [[butch]], [[femme]], [[gender questioning]], and [[intersex]].
===Nonbinary identities===
''See main article: [[nonbinary gender]]''
There are many gender identities that are decidedly outside of the [[gender binary]]. See [[nonbinary gender]] for a list.
===Gender-variant identities worldwide===
''See main article: [[gender-variant identities worldwide]]''
Many [[ethnicity and culture|ethnic and cultural groups]] recognize gender identities outside of the Western female/male [[gender binary]], which anthropologists call "third gender". Some of these represent binary transgender identities, or [[cisgender]] lesbian/gay or [[gender non-conforming]] identities, but some are also transgender nonbinary gender identities. See [[gender-variant identities worldwide]] for a list, and more information about the problems involved in imposing outsiders' labels on these identities.
==Other identities==
This wiki also has articles on some identities that are not gender identities, such as [[otherkin]], or are not on the MOGII spectrum, such as [[cisgender]]. There are some identities that are disputed about whether they should be categorized with [[LGBT]], such as [[intersex]]. There are some identities that indicate only that they are associated with LGBT without being any more specific, such as [[queer]], [[gender nonconforming]], and [[questioning]].
