Queer. Originally, it’s a word that means weird or strange. It’s a slur that has been reclaimed by the LGBTQ+ activist movement; it’s now often used as a synonym for LGBTQ+. People who have a sexuality or a way of living their gender that is outside the norm can use queer to avoid a label that’s restrictive. It’s a political movement too that opposes stiff categories; it’s against power structures dominated by straight and cisgender people.
