This past June, the Canadian Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (EFTO) asked teachers to attend a seminar on LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP Inclusiveness Training. An images of the flyer was recirculated recently on social media after being featured in an article in the Daily Mail, and the flyer has gained quite a bit of attention for the use of the lengthy acronym. According to the flyer, LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP stands for Lesbian, Gay, Genderqueer, Bisexual, Demisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Twospirit, Intersex, Queer, Questioning, Asexual, Allies, Pansexual, and Polyamorous.
Some of these terms in the acronym may require an explanation. According to the Daily Wire, “Genderqueer” refers to a person who “does not subscribe to conventional gender distinctions but identifies with neither, both, or a combination of male and female genders.” A “demisexual” is a person who requires a strong emotional connection with someone before feeling a sexual attraction to that person. “Two-spirited” identifies individuals who feel that they have both masculine and feminine spirits. “Intersex” is a birth defect once called hermaphrodite, in which a child is born with both sex organs of male and female. If you are an “ally,” you are apparently someone who makes your support for the LGBTQ community quite well known despite not being a member of that community. describes this as someone who “virtue signal[s] constantly on Twitter” in order to “shield themselves from the gaystappo squads who come around looking for people who aren’t properly broadcasting their approval of the queer agenda.” “Pansexual” claims to be different than bisexual in that pansexuals are attracted to people of various “gender identities,” not just males or females.

Once the flyer circulated on social media, users could not help but poke fun at the sheer length of the acronym. “When the keyboard gets stuck and you just go with it,” one user joked. Another remarked, “Isn't that a village in Wales?”

While many (understandably) thought the whole thing was hoax, the organizers of the event told Snopes, “Yes, the poster is genuine. The intent of the title was to draw workshop participants (teachers) by acknowledging that keeping track of diverse LGBTQ identities can be overwhelming, especially as our students are continuously identifying new ones. In our union, we use LGBTQ as an umbrella term for all marginalized sexual and gender identities.”

Note that point: The elementary school students are continuously identifying new “gender identities.”

Two-Spirit (also two spirit or, occasionally, twospirited) is a modern, pan-Indian, umbrella term used by some indigenous North Americans to describe certain people in their communities who fulfill a traditional third-gender (or other gender-variant) role in their cultures.
