Members of the National Lavender Greens Caucus (NLGC) are free to speak for themselves on any issue. In official letters, press releases, or any other communications from the NLGC our designated spokespersons and officers will refer to the caucus membership using all of the following terms; Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual. In reference to the caucus as a whole do not use one or more without using all the named identities. Using the acronym LGBTQIA is acceptable to fulfill this requirement, as is using Lavender or Lavenders.

This policy recognizes that the Lavender Caucus consists of a dynamic, diverse membership the constituents of which embrace one or more identities. The caucus acknowledges that no one label can cover all its members or the communities to which they belong.

The National Lavender Greens Caucus supports an individual’s right of self-determination regarding their biological sex, gender identity/expression, and/or sexual orientations. Preferred names and pronouns will be respected and used.
