bilingual pride facts Show more
because acronyms are basically impossible in Arabic I was curious what the accepted equivalent of LGBT was. I grew up a clueless straight boy so I didn't know offhand.
turns out it's مجتمع الميم mujtamaa al-meem, literally "meme community" or "meme society"
happy pride everyone
the Arabic names for the different components of LGBT all start with the letter م meem, the M sound.
lesbian = مثليات mithlayatgay = مثليون mithlyeenbisexual = مزدوجي الميول muzdawjay al-muyultransgender = متحولون/ متحولات الجنس mutahawaleen / mutahawilat al-jins
so the acronym would actually just be مممم MMMM lol. instead, it's the meme society, which is, I think, extremely very good.
gay = مثليون mithlyoon*
