Queer Women

Queer women are an awesome and diverse group of people, including cisgender and transgender women who may be bisexual, lesbian, pansexual, two-spirited and/or asexual. As one of the sexual health guides for queer women states:

“Women lovin’ women are a diverse group. We are of different ages and come from different places. Some of us are poor and some of us are rich. Some of us are trans and some of us are cis*. Some of us smoke, some of us use drugs, some of us are vegan and some of us love our red meat. Some of us only sleep with women and some of us are also into bois, trans guys and dudes.We might have a single partner at a time or we might see multiple people. We might call ourselves queer, femme, butch, lesbian, bisexual, trans, pansexual or genderqueer. We might reject labels because labels can be tricky for some of us and mean different things to different people.”

That said, queer women do not always get a lot of positive attention when it comes to sexual health resources or within queer communities. While we’re in the process of developing this content, here are two great links for those of you looking for sexual health information:

  • Brazen, a guide for trans women
  • Women Lovin’, a guide for cis, trans*, and genderqueer women who have sex with women, some or all of the time
