USI is delighted to launch this dictionary today, alongside the Transgender Equality Network of Ireland (TENI) and BelongTo. We began this project as we believed that it was right that everyone would be able to recognise themselves in any language, and that they would be able to describe themselves in any
language. The Irish language showed us that she was up to this challenge, and it gives us great pleasure to say that we succeeded in putting The Queer Dictionary together. As language changes, and as people change, however, the Dictionary will change in the future. It is a working document.
