Formerly Nottingham & Notts Lesbian & Gay Switchboard

LGBT+ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, and other similar minority  sexual or romantic orientations and gender identities.


The way people talk about gender identity and attraction has changed over time. Other cultures have their own words, for instance some Indigenous Americans call what we would call LGBT people “Two Spirit”. Here in the UK words change and new words come along. The + is there to remind us that our communities are more diverse than can be put across in four simple letters, and that if your attractions or identity don’t fit with gender norms then we hope we can offer you support, whatever words describe you best.
