The word "queer" itself means across - it comes from the Indo-European root -twerkw, which also yields the German quer (transverse), Latin torquere (to twist), English athwart. ... The immemorial current that queer represents is antiseparatist as it is antiassimilationist. Keenly, it is relational, and strange. - Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, "Tendencies"
Queer is about celebrating difference and diversity while remaining related with other human beings. Whether you're lesbian, dyke, gay, bi, poly, FtM, MtF, queer, boi bodied female minded, female bodied male minded, a birl, a twink..whatever you choose to express yourself yourself. At the heart of it all, we're all different, yet we all have a connection. To provide a forum and safe haven for those who fall under the blanket term of queer.
