New LGBTI+ words added to dictionary

‘Pinkwashing’ and ‘queerbaiting’ are among new LGBTQ+ words added to dictionary.

Words such as pinkwashing, queerbaiting and abrosexual are among 313 entries added to in its winter 2023 update.

The online dictionary released the update on Tuesday (28 February), adding the entries as well as revising more than a thousand definitions of existing words. 

Among entire categories covering “identity” and “sex, gender and relationships” were the words, abrosexual (meaning sexual fluidity), multisexual, and folx (a variation of “folks”). 

The latest update follows the introduction of aromantic and demisexual in 2022.
