Originally meaning strange or weird, the term “queer” came to mean homosexual or anything within the realm of “abnormal” sexuality or gender and has been used as a derogatory slur. However, to counter the negative image, we want to reclaim the word “queer” so that ways of living thought of as “abnormal” or “atypical” can be reframed in a positive light. In reclaiming this word, we intend to promote individual autonomy over their gender, sexuality and/or lifestyles, and visibilization of gender binary or other social norms that we are told we must or should follow, so that we can start to question and challenge them.
