It’s OK if you don’t like the word queer. I understand that some people feel uneasy about LGBTQ people reclaiming it for ourselves.

Understand, though, that when we use it, we usually mean it as an umbrella term for all people who are members of gender and sexual minorities.

If you don’t like it, it’s perfectly OK to say LGBTQ instead.

But five syllables is a real mouthful.
