Out Front Theatre Company exists to tell stories of the LGBTQIA+ experience and community, through theatre and the performing arts, to the greater Atlanta area.
L stands for Lesbian: Term used to describe female-identified people attracted romantically, erotically, and/or emotionally to other female-identified people.
G stands for Gay: Term used in some cultural settings to represent males who are attracted to males in a romantic, erotic and/or emotional sense. Also a term used to refer to the LGBTQI community as a whole, or as an individual identity label for anyone who does not identify as heterosexual.
B stands for Bisexual: A person emotionally, physically, and/or sexually attracted to males/men and females/women. This attraction does not have to be equally split between genders and there may be a preference for one gender over others.
T stands for Transgender: A person who lives as a member of a gender other than that expected based on anatomical sex. Sexual orientation varies and is not dependent on gender identity. This term is sometimes used to refer to the gender variant community as a whole.
Q stands for Queer: An umbrella term which embraces a matrix of sexual preferences, orientations, and habits of the not-exclusively- heterosexual-and-monogamous majority. Queer includes lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transpeople, intersex persons, and many other sexually transgressive explorers. The term is also sometimes used as a sexual orientation label instead of ‘bisexual’ as a way of acknowledging that there are more than two genders to be attracted to, or as a way of stating a non-heterosexual orientation without having to state who they are attracted to.
I stands for Intergender: Intergender people have a gender identity that is in the middle between the binary genders of female and male, and may be a mix of both.
A stands for Allied: Someone who confronts heterosexism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, heterosexual and genderstraight privilege in themselves and others; a concern for the well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and intersex people; and a belief that heterosexism, homophobia, biphobia and transphobia are social justice issues.
+ stands for Many Other Identifications including, but not limited to asexual, pansexual, genderqueer, polysexual, agender, androsexual, demisexual, and skoliosexual. We strive to be as inclusive as we can and know we can always improve. We welcome all humans, regardless of labels, and hope we celebrate and accept everyone regardless of how they indenitfy.
