The "Q" primarily refers to "Queer", meaning someone who doesn't fit into any one particular label. They may not be homosexual, bisexual, or transgendered, but they still don't necessarily "fit" into the gender mold."Q" can also mean "Questioning", in that they aren't really sure just where their sexual orientation is. They may be "put off" by the notion of themselves in a same-gender sexual relationship, but they aren't exactly "put off" by the notion altogether. Societal conditioning, upbringing and cultural differences often leave a lot of people confused as to how they should proceed. These are the people who are questioning.One that isn't listed which you may also see from time-to-time is "I" for Intersexed. I have seen this described as someone who is asexual and as someone who is hermaphroditic. Both could be accurate descriptions, depending upon the person. This could be someone who was forced into a gender role at birth with the doctors removing one of the two sets of genitalia. Yes, it happens, and yes, it is every bit as horrific as it sounds.
