What is inclusive language and why should we use it?
Language is inclusive when we use words in ways that demonstrate our respect for how people describe their own genders, bodies and relationships. It is important to show this respect even when we are describing people who are not present.
The National LGBTI Health Alliance has put together this Inclusive Language Guide to help us speak respectfully to and about people of intersex, trans and gender diverse experience.
