What does LGBTQIA stand for?

What does LGBTQIA stand for? It is an acronym that stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, intersex and allies. The umbrella term is used because people who are members of these groups often encounter discrimination and stigma because of their sexual identities. Counseling may be appropriate for people who feel badly about themselves so that they can accept themselves and move forward with strength even if they are confronted by the discriminatory actions of others.
