    This was very enlightening and definitely not queer.
    I now feel gay.

    This explanation is rather antiquated. We reclaimed the word “queer” in the early-mid ’80s as a catchall, to simplify the growing acronym LGBTQ. Over the past 20 years, it’s come to symbolize people whose gender expression and orientation are more radical, whereas “gay” refers to more mainstream homosexuals. Marriage equality, the right to serve in the military, issues HRC could get behind, are gay issues, whereas those of us who oppose Pride, HRC, and other mainstream entities (based on their pro-corporate, anti-trans histories) identify as queer.
