What does SOGI stand for?

Sexual orientation and gender identity

SOGI stands for sexual orientation (who you are attracted to) and gender identity (the gender with which you identify). For example, a person's SOGI may consist of attraction to males and identification as female.

You will most likely see SOGI online, whether it be on social media, in a GSM forum, or messages in a dating app. However, you may also see it in formal spaces, like the United Nations, medical inquiries, and government health sites.

SOGI is one of many gender identity slang terms that have gained popularity in the 2010s. Others include SAAB, PGP, cis, and NB.
