The Leon County School Board is in the process of amending the LGBTQ+ Guide. Tallahassee Reports has recently written about a workshop that addressed the “Guide” and the proposed list of frequently asked questions.
Listed below is a glossary of 41 LGBTQ+ related terms that is described as “necessary to become familiar with the terminology that is commonly associated with the LGBTQ+ community.”
The glossary provides terms and definitions that are to be used in communicating with grades K-2 and grades 3-12.
For example, for grades K-2 gay is defined as “a woman who has romantic feelings for another woman; or a man who has romantic feelings for another man.”
For grades 3-12, gay is defined as “a term that can apply to either to men or women who are physically and emotionally attracted to persons of the same sex.”
