Queer is a sexual identity used to refer to people, or that people use to refer to themselves when they are not heterosexual and do not fit into the gender binary. It classifies genders as being strictly male and female. Queer is considered an umbrella term often adopted by those who feel they fall outside the societal norms concerning gender and sexuality. It is considered more inclusive than more specific labels like lesbian, gay, and bisexual. Therefore, some people prefer this term to build a movement and community based on acceptance rather than labeling differences.
