What does LGBTQ+ actually mean?

The LGBTQ+ sometimes called LGBTQIA folks are known as the alphabet people because the community includes so many sexual orientations.

According to The New York Times, the symbol “+” means all non-cisgender and non-straight identities that are not included in the acronym.
