A Detailed Look at Gender Expression and Identity

iqastaff:

In this next blog post, we would like to concentrate on the IQA’s goal to be inclusive to the LGBTQ* community, including a more detailed look at gender identity and gender expression. The IQA seeks to be a community that respects players of all backgrounds, and particularly hopes to be a safe space for our fellow athletes and other participants who are trans* and/or do not self-identify within the gender binary.

While the IQA understands that the current “two minimum rule” is far from perfect, we feel that it is a step in the right direction towards recognizing the diversity of our community as well as avoiding cissexism. We also feel that education on this issue is vital as it is often an issue in which people are uneducated. The following are some terms as well as gender identities for those who do not recognize within the gender binary, as well as some helpful tips to be an ally and help make the quidditch community, both online and in person, a safe space for trans* individuals.

Also note that we’ve used the acronym LGBT* or LGBTQ*, but there are many other ways this acronym can be presented, such as LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, Asexual). Generally saying “LGBT*” is a good option because the asterisk sort of acts as an umbrella for everything within the spectrum. You’ll also see “trans*” with the asterisk because it also acts as an umbrella for all trans* identities without being cumbersome. It’s sort of like you’re referring to a footnote and that footnote can be any identity on the gender identity spectrum.

I'm from Denver, and I came to the realization the other day that I need people to play quidditch with over winter break and the summer when I'm home, and I found you guys and that makes me really happy. Just thought I'd let you know that. :)

You are welcome to visit our prison and partake in such activities that befit a player of the dark art of Quidditch.
