Gender-Loving-Gender (GLG) is a format used to describe some juvelic attractions or relationships. These terms are based on stating one's own gender and the gender(s) one is attracted to. Examples include mlm (man loving man) and wlnb (woman loving non-binary). For terms that use the gender-loving-gender format attraction does not have to be exclusive.

These terms are commonly used as umbrella terms to form a sense of community around a common attraction. For example, lesbians, bisexual women, and pansexual women all fall under the category of women loving women (wlw)/sapphic, because they are all attracted to women and these attractions don't have to be exclusive. In this case by identifying as sapphic they are usually emphasizing or prioritizing their attraction to women over any other attractions that they may have.

Some individuals, such as multigender and/or multisexual individuals, may fall under multiple of these categories. One may identify as multiple of these terms or some combination of them, all dependent upon how one views themself and how one views their relationships/attraction(s).

How To Use

First Letter

The first letter indicates what gender one personally identifies as. The most commonly used letters are:

Theoretically any gender can be abbreviated and represented here. Some lesser used letters include:

One can fall under multiple of the gender categories at once. The category(s) one falls under is based entirely on one's own perception of their gender and what aspects of their gender they consider important in regards to their attraction. For example, a woman aligned non-binary individual may identify only in the W category, or they may identify only in the NB category, or they may identify as being in both categories.

Second Letter

The second letter is almost always “L”, standing for "loving". It is rarely replaced by a "4", meaning "for". An example using 4 is T4T (Trans For Trans).

Third Letter

The third letter indicates the gender one is attracted to. Just like the first letter, the most common are “M”, “W”, or “NB”, but theoretically any gender could be put here. One could experience attraction to that gender and/or participate in relationships with that gender exclusively or not.
