Yes. LGBTQ+ is for people who are not straight so anybody that is not straight is considered to be in the LGBTQ+ category

Yes! Asexuality is a valid sexual identity that is definitely included in the LGBTQIA+ community. Asexuality does not fit the heterosexual "norm" of society and asexual people have their own unique experience of the world. They very much belong in the LGBTQ+ community!

Yes, of course! Some people choose to say LGBTQA (A standing for asexual/aromanitc) instead of LGBTQ.

Definitely, LGBTQ expanded is LGBTQIPA, and even then it still has more. That A is where you are, and there's nothing wrong with that! People might say asexuality is fake or dumb, but it's not. It's perfectly normal.

It's pretty controversial, though i'd say the majority of people believe Asexuality is inherently LGBT. There's a lot of discourse about it. Honestly, believe what you want.

Yes, asexuality is covered under the LGBTQ umbrella. A common extended acronym is LGBTQIA, where I is intersex, and A is asexual.

Asexuality is of course in the LGBTQ+ community. A lot of LGBT people frown upon it, but that is a very uptight portion of the community. Many argue that you have to be sexually attracted to people to be in the spectrum, but I beg to differ. The FULL meaning of LGBTQ+ is: L - Lesbian G - Gay/Homosexual B - Bisexual/Biromantic T - Transgender/Transsexual Q - Queer/Questioning I - Intersexual A - Intersexual Those are just the things summed up in LGBTQ+, just because a sexuality is not in the meaning does not make it any less more important or less validated. So, yes, ASEXUAL is part of the LGBTQ+ community (:

Of course it is. The lgbtq+ community is designed to be a safe place for anyone who lives and loves differently than the social norm. Seeing as asexuality is often looked down upon by society for how they choose to identify they belong in the lgbtq+ community just as much as any other group. Asexuals deserve to be a part of the community, they deserve to have the same sense of love and acceptance. Given that they are stigmatized they need a safe and supportive place to go just as anyone else in the lgbtq+ community does. Asexuality definetly belongs in the lgbtq+ community.

Of course! Every and any sexual orientation and/or gender identity other than straight and/or cisgender are part of the LGBTQ community, and all orientations and identities are valid.

Yes, asexuality is a part of the lgbt+ community. Asexuality is defined as the lack of sexual attraction to any gender or sex, but that does not mean that asexual people do not want a romantic relationship. Some asexual people perform sex for their partners too. In between asexuality and sexuality also lies another sexuality called demi sexual. It is defined as felling attracted to people with whom the person has an emotional bond. I hope this helped you.
