I like to use language respectfully and inclusively. I am still a student of this

I acknowledge and respect the diversity of bodies, genders and relationships, and celebrate people expressing their gender, sexuality, creativity and spirituality in different ways.

I do my best to offer inclusive language to acknowledge the diversity of people I work with, connect to, and serve. 

LGBTIQ terminology is diverse and constantly evolving.

Please let me know if I can do better in this area.

Often in my articles I may mention sex that is determined by chromosomes. I know that gender is a social construct that can vary between time periods, generations and cultures, existing on a spectrum, both historically and by modern scientific consensus.
