LGBT people are not a homogenous population. The acronyms LGBT or LGBTI (ā€œIā€ for intersex1) group individuals together based on similar experiences of discriminatory treatment in society because they fall outside of social norms about sexuality and gender, due to their sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, and/or sex characteristics. While this is helpful to analyse the consequences of marginalization, it is important not to assume that individuals under this umbrella acronym necessarily have similar experiences or needs. In fact, individual experiences differ greatly across the populations covered under the acronym. Thus, the populations represented by each individual letter in the acronym are complex and heterogeneous, even more so when differences in race, age, ability, religion, culture, socioeconomic class, and geographic location are also taken into account. In this report, we use the acronym LGBTI in order to point to similar experiences of stigma, marginalization and discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics in heteronormative societal frameworks. However, frequently we disaggregate this umbrella into its constituent groups in order to highlight specific characteristics and differences. READMORE
