inclusive

to be inclusive means to provide spaces, resources and systems that are open and fully accessible to everyone, regardless of their identity or particular traits.

An example of this is may be creating Queer spaces that are trans-inclusive. That is, spaces that allow transgender individuals to participate and feel safe without hostility or objection.

This may extend to using language that is inclusive of differing identities; for example, when talking about same-sex attraction, one can be inclusive of bisexual+ people by not referring to all same-gender attracted people as being ‘gay’.
