Q is for questioning
Many assume that the "Q" in LGBTQ+ stands for queer. And that's right. But the Q also stands for questioning. Questioning describes the process of discovery and exploration about sexual orientation, gender identity, and/or gender expression. Questioning can be an aspect of adolescence as young people explore various facets of their identity, but it can occur at any stage in life.
Take a look at this article in Psychology Today that addresses the importance of "the other q"--that is, the process of questioning and exploring one's gender and/or sexual identity.
