    An identity is how a person thinks of themself, and what words they use to label themself. This includes identities in and related to the LGBTQIA+ community. Many identities in this community have their own pride flags, which use colour symbolism to tell about that identity.

    Romantic/sexual identities[edit | edit source]

    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, they are who you are attracted to.

    Gender identities[edit | edit source]

    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[edit | edit source]

    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[edit | edit source]

    See main article: gender-variant identities worldwide

    Many 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[edit | edit source]

    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 indicate only that they are associated with LGBT without being any more specific, such as queer, gender nonconforming, questioning, and nonbinary.
