Egale’s French Style Guide is a working resource to help with inclusive writing in French. In the resource, you will find some common English 2SLGBTQI related terms and their preferred French translations, some common phrases to be aware of, and some general conventions when thinking about inclusive writing in French language.

Please note: This is a working document that will be updated periodically. Like many aspects of language, 2SLGBTQI identity terms and acronyms evolve. How an individual or group self-identities may shift over time or change depending on the situational context. When referring to a specific person or group, refrain from assuming and always confirm which term(s) are appropriate with the relevant parties.
