The Meaning of LGBTQ+

What is LGBTQ?
 

LGBTQ is an acronym that represents the world’s gay community. Interpreted a number of different ways, the title stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and the “Q” for those still questioning their sexualty. LGBTQ is intended to emphasize a diversity of sexuality and gender identity-based cultures. It may be used to refer to anyone who is non-heterosexual or non-cisgender, instead of exclusively to people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender.

 

LGBTQ symbols
 

A number of symbols have been adopted to represented the LGBTQ community. Beginning with the powerful labrys, a weapon used by the mighty matriarchs of the Ancient Minoan civilization. Today it is used to represent lesbian and feminist strength and self-sufficiency. While gay men have often associated the lambda with their sexuality, perhaps the most recognizable symbol could be the rainbow flag. Each color is symbolic in representing the community: 

  • •  Red stands for life
  • •  Orange stands for healing
  • •  Yellow stands for the sun
  • •  Green stands for nature
  • •  Blue stands for harmony
  • •  Purple stands for the soul
  • •  Black stands for the inclusion of all races

LGBTQ history

The LGBTQ term was adopted following hard fought social activism throughout the late 20th century. During an era where self-advocacy defined our nation, the LGBTQ community stood up for centuries of persecution and second-class citizenship to earn equal rights among their peers. Protest and parades flooded the streets of major US cities during the 1970s and 80s and finally, during the early 90s, the LGBTQ term was embraced.

 

What’s next for LGBTQ?

As of 2015, a landmark Supreme Court ruling declared same-sex marriage constitutional, however members of the LGBTQ community still experience daily prejudices. Political agendas target and divide the community, forcing members to abandon their autonomy and select sides. A number of states still lack anti-discrimination laws that protect sexual identity and even, in extreme cases, outlaw the use of public restrooms for members of the community. The LGBTQ community is working hard to attain “true” equal rights with a strong presence in entertainment as well as Congress.


What Are Your Ring Options?

Feel confident in not following etiquette by wearing a non-traditional ring. We have handcrafted alternative rings for many individuals from the gay community. Some grooms have custom-ordered matching wedding bands. Some brides might have a pair of engagement rings. Other times, couples get completely different kinds of rings! Enjoy the freedom of making your own marriage custom. As a jeweler that makes each ring one-at-a-time, you can personalize your and your beloved's rings to your liking. Incorporate gender or meaningful symbols, messages and your favorite gemstones, while staying within budget!
