Vocabulary

The Latino/a Roundtable is pleased to present to you with his LGBTQ Vocabulary.

We hope that it will help you develop a common and positive language to understand, accept and affirm LGBTQ persons in families, communities and churches.

Language is a powerful tool, and it is important that we all gain access to power through information and education. Language is also a powerful way to hurt and demean people and communities. Therefore, it is important to know and understand the proper and improper use of language and the meaning of words, so we may employ them with respect in reference to LGBTQ persons and communities.
Using the power of language positively will lead Latinos/as and LGBTQ persons and families to have a deeper grounding in faith and family, as well as contribute to greater equality and justice for all marginalized communities.
