Find out about what it means to be Rainbow.

What does it mean to be rainbow?

Rainbow is an umbrella term which encompasses anyone who isn't heterosexual, heteroromantic or cisgender as well as people with variations of sex characteristics. The rainbow community is also often referred to as the LGBTQIA+ or Queer community. Like any label, many people who "fit the definition" of being rainbow do not necessarily identify with the rainbow community. Some people may feel more comfortable using a different label to describe themselves, while others prefer not to label themselves at all.

There is no test or criteria for identifying as rainbow. If you feel like the label represents you, it's yours to use and identify with.
