A guide to explain LGBTQ+ to a 5 year old
LGBTQ+ is a group of letters that stand for different types of people who love and care about others in a special way.
L means people who love other people who are the same gender as them.
G means people who love other people who are the opposite gender as them.
B means people who love both boys and girls.
T means people who feel like they are not the same gender as they were born.
Q means people who are not sure yet, or people who don't want to say one of the other letters.
The "+" means there are other types of people who are also part of this group and we want to include everyone, no matter what.
