Terminology
Labels and identities have always been a big part of the LGBT community. Over time some words have had different meanings. Here's my attempt at a somewhat comprehensive list of terms, labels and identities.
Microaggressions & Russia
These are on 2 sides of the same scale. Microaggressions are small little things that mean someone doesn't respect your identity.

Russia on the other hand is currently forming LGBT concentration camps.

B

T

Gender vs. Sex: Sex is what is on your birth certificate, typically male or female. Gender is what you identify as.
a short list of terms:
gay
lesbian
queer
bisexual
pansexual
demisexual
asexual
heterosexual

Some Sexualities:
There are, of course other slurs that I'm not comfortable with putting up here. But please be careful with what you say, almost anything can be derogatory if said in the wrong context.
These are bills being put in place that would limit and make it illegal for transgender individuals to use their preferred restroom.
Casual Slurs
"That's so gay", is a phrase far too commonly heard to those who are listening.
