LGBT means Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender, which are terms used to describe people’s sexual, emotional and/or romantic orientation and/or gender identity. Often, you will see ‘LGBT+’ being used as the ‘+’ includes the many other identities that exist (without having to add many other letters onto LGBT!).

However you identify, the information on this page should help get you the support you need.
