Conversations about LGBT people and equality are most effective when we can talk in genuine, emotionally compelling ways that connect with the values of our audience. Showing people how they can support LGBT people and equality in a way that is consistent with their beliefs and values can help people work through any inner conflict they may feel. It also makes it more difficult to ignore or dismiss the discrimination and other harms that LGBT people face.

The guide provide an overview on the words we use to talk about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people and issues.
