What Does LGBT and LGBTQ+ Mean?
LGBT may refer to anybody who is non-heterosexual or non-cisgender, instead of being exclusively to people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. To increase inclusion and acceptance to the wider community, LGBTQ adds the letter Q for those who identify as queer or are questioning their sexual/gender identity.
Further including the letter I for intersex and later the letter A for asexual, the term LGBTQIA is also commonly used to describe the community further. However with such a more diverse spectrum of gender and sexual identities, the plus (+) was also added after the Q to become LGBTQ+.
The term LGBT is still used today, however most commonly people refer to the community as either LGBTQ, LGBTQIA, LGBTQ+ or LGBTQIA+ to be more inclusive.

With the removal of pink, blue and turquoise were then merged into royal blue. With now having an even number of 6, the flag could be evenly split to line two sides of the street for pride.
