|I'm really really truly very sorry for all these questions but is queer not synonymous with gay? Or is it just an all-encompassing term? I mean, sexuality is sort of blurred as it is and you don't need to label yourself anything in particular but I'm just a bit confused.|
Queer is just a general term for those who identify as anything but straight where as gay implies that you would date only those of the same sex or gender. I choose the term queer for myself because I like people of the same sex but also just other queer people in general, like my boyfriend who isn’t biologically male.
