in sociology, a social group of people that share an identity or social structure (e.g. culture, norms, roles, values). Communities represent a sense of belonging for people, and an avenue for individuals within them to participate and have agency.
In Queer contexts, this may refer to the Queer community as a whole, or the various communities within it, e.g. the gay and lesbian community, the bisexual+ community, the transgender community, the nonbinary community, etc.
