Dylan Siegel, 7, wrote a book called “Chocolate Bar” last year to raise money for his best friend, 8-year-old Jonah Pournazarian. A little more than a year later, it's raised $750,000.
I have advocated using the expression "gender and sexual minorities," or the acronym "GSM," as the collective political term for people who are not cisgender and/or heterosexual. So it was welcome news when UK therapists came out this year in favor of a splendid refinement of the term.
The proposition of "gender and sexual diversities" is an important opening into the conversation of expanding how we linguistically understand our movement, our experiences and ourselves. However, I think we need to move beyond narrow signifiers, particularly acronyms like "LGBT."
