I like this, but honestly, I think that it should stick to Gender/Sexuality Minorities/marginalized identities (I don’t think intersex technically falls under GSM because it’s sex, not sexuality or gender, but I think that should be included for sure).
I want to remake a version of this without androsexual, gynesexual, androgynesexual, heterosexual, cis female, and cis male. It’s not that I have something against any of these identities, it’s just that positivity for a normative identity that faces no systematic discrimination seems a little bit devaluing to the struggles of people who are non-normative. I’m not going to say I am heterosexual-positive. I am ALLY-positive, including heterosexual allies, but heteros who expect me to change myself to fit their mold do not get my “positivity”. It’s not a double standard in “blindly” supporting queers while not “blindly” supporting hetero/cis people. Hetero/cis people saying they feel discriminated against (mostly on the tumblrverse) is a case of “check your privilege” in my opinion. I absolutely disagree with the identity policing I see some non-heterosexual and non-cis queers participating in, saying you can’t be heterosexual or cisgender, because that’s absolutely ridiculous. I am IDENTITY-positive, so maybe I’ll add that.
My point is, if this were about ethnicity/race, wouldn’t it strike as odd to say “this journal is white positive”? I just think that positivity is for groups/practices that face opposition or are stigmatized.
Again, it’s really not selfishly motivated. Many of the things I am -positive for are things I don’t identify as. And there are things I identify as that are not discriminated against and therefore shouldn’t have a -positive. I’m monogamous. I am poly-positive. I don’t believe there should be a monogamy-positive badge.
I am:
queer-positive (and all those queer identities)
sex-positive
neurodiversity-positive
body-positive
kink-positive
polyamory-positive
identity-positive
ally-positive
feminist-positive (I am a feminist, the wording of that seems odd, but I’d use such a badge, for sure) 
I’m sure there are more that I am.
